    Cultural Event - Brussels, Belgium

    The EESC will host an exhibition called "Images of Forgiveness", a sensitive project chosen as part of the Committee's activities to commemorate the anniversary of the First World War.


    "Images of Forgiveness" is the brainchild of the British journalist Marina Cantacuzino and the photographer Brian Moody, who have collected numerous stories of people whose lives have been shattered by violence, tragedy and injustice and who are learning to forgive, reconcile and move on.

    The opening will be held on 21 January 2015 at 7 pm at the JDE Foyer 6. The exhibition will remain, at the ground floor of JDE, until 4 February 2015.

    The Raw Materials Initiative and the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials are key policies that may contribute decisively to maintaining the competitiveness and sustainability of European industry and, consequently, the maintenance or creation of new jobs, especially in regions that have been affected by restructuring due to globalisation.


    The CCMI has valuable experience to share with other stakeholders based on opinions that have been adopted in recent years: tackling the challenges in commodity markets and on raw materials, the processing and exploitation of industrial and mining waste deposits from the EU, secondary raw materials, the Raw Materials Initiative, non-energy mining industry in Europe, supply of raw materials.


    Going local in events that will be organised in Spain, Slovakia, Romania and Finland will create the right framework for the committee members to better understand the situation on the ground and the concerns of the local organised civil society.
