On 2 July the European Commission launched a package of policy strategies and legislative proposals "Towards a circular economy – a zero waste programme for Europe". In the coming months the European Council and the European Parliament will start debates on these proposals.
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), as a consultative body, is currently preparing an opinion on the Commission circular economy policy package in order to contribute to this debate. In this regard on 22 September 2014 the EESC will organise in Brussels a public hearing on circular economy, thaht will take place from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm.
The hearing should provide input to the EESC opinion. Speakers and participants will come from the European Commission, the European Parliament, think-tanks, businesses and civil society organisations.
