    Official meetings of the EESC and its bodies


  • Public Hearing - EESC, Room JDE52 - Rue Belliard 99., 1040 Brussels, Belgium

    Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is causing distress and loss of quality of life to a growing number of Europeans and according to new estimates, between 3 % and 5% of the population are electro-sensitive. The most common sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) pollution are mobile phone masts, cordless phones and Wi-Fi routers installed in the homes. All these emit microwaves permanently (24/7) in the places where they are installed.

    This event will gather all relevant stakeholders from a broad range of European civil society for a debate on how to deal with this issues at EU level and to give input for the future EESC's opinion that is scheduled for adoption in January 2015.

    Civil society debate on the global negotiations and the EU position in preparation for the UNFCCC COP 20 in Lima

    Climate change is one of the biggest threats to human development. It will affect all economies but will hit people living in poverty the hardest. World leaders are preparing to adopt a new global climate agreement at the UNFCCC COP 21 in Paris in 2015, and elements of an initial text will be tabled at the COP 20 meeting in Lima in December 2014. Civil society will have a crucial role to play in the negotiation process ahead, by contributing to the dialogue on the implications of climate mitigation and adaptation policies for different sectors and demanding concrete policy commitments.
