Citizens’ Internet. The Many Threats to Neutrality.

Conference - EESC, room TRE7701 - 74 rue de Trèves, 1040 Brussels, Belgium

As the media sphere is shifting towards digital services, commercial organizations, many of them based outside the EU, are more and more able to decide upon which kind of content and which sort of communication constitute the public sphere. These developments have profound implications for us in terms of press plurality and individual rights.

    A European Pension Tracking Service Is Feasible

    TTYPE project publishes final report for the European Commission with a set of recommendations and a high level design for a cross-border European tracking service.

    The TTYPE project (Track and Trace Your Pension in Europe) handed over its report on the roadmap towards creating a general pension tracking service in Europe to the European Commission after it had been presented at a conference, organised together with the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels. It shows that it is feasible to establish a cross-border pension tracking service to the benefit of not only mobile workers wanting to keep track of their pension entitlements but also to the benefit of pension providers who need to keep in contact with their beneficiaries. The final report from the TTYPE project gives a set of detailed recommendations on how to achieve this and what methods to use.

    Making Democracy work at the local level: Ensuring sustainable growth and social progress in Latvia

    "Whether we are talking about combatting depopulation in rural areas, creating employment through social enterprises or focussing on community-led development, the message is the same: We need to build up local capacities, mobilise the grassroots and civil society organisations, propose innovative and integrated approaches and build up alliances. Above all, we must empower local organisations and give them ownership of the process". With these words of Mr Jahier, President of the Various Interests Group of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), opened the conference on 'Economic Growth and Social Progress in Rural and Urban Areas', which was organised by his group in  Riga on 25 March.
