Europe 2020 – paths for reinventing Europe's future

Conference - Belgium, Brussels

Currently under review, Europe 2020 is the EU's sole long-term strategy. Despite the fact that Europe is showing the first signs of slight economic recovery, the social crisis is still deepening. Europe has to find its way out and reinvent its jobs and growth strategy. Therefore the EESC is organizing a conference based on interactive stakeholders' involvement, with the focus on present and future social, economic and environmental challenges. This will be an occasion for policy makers and stakeholders to engage in a constructive debate in order to focus the reform efforts on making the EU more resilient.

    The Cotonou Agreement gives mandate to the EESC to keep a dialogue with ACP economic and social interest groups.

    Within this framework, the EESC organises a seminar in a different ACP region every year in order to better tackle the specificities of that region and its relations with the EU. To date, thirteen regional seminars have been organised.

    The next regional seminar will be held in Cameroon.

    The UN post-2015 agenda for sustainable development, which heads of state will adopt on an UN summit in September 2015, cannot be implemented and achieved by governments alone. Sustainable Development Goals will need the full engagement of diverse civil society actors to put them into practice. According to the UN General Secretary's Synthesis Report "the new agenda must become part of the contract between people, including civil society and responsible business, and their governments (…)."

    Therefore, at the UN High-Level-Political-Forum session this year the role of civil society actors and stakeholders will be an important issue. This side event aims at contributing to this debate by looking into the broader experiences with civil society involvement in sustainable development policies and defining enabling conditions for a strong and active role of stakeholders.

    On 7 July 2015, Group III would like to organise a seminar to discuss the current situation in trade and agri-food products following the Russian restrictions on food imports from the EU. Since Russia banned the import of agricultural goods from the EU the situation for food producers has been very critical and has impacted several European countries such as Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia which export more than half of their agri-food export to Russia.

    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.
