Green Infrastructure: a European success story

Conference - Brussels, Belgium

Green Infrastructure enables nature to deliver a variety of benefits to ecosystems and people, including for jobs, growth, health and quality of life. Many success cases show the value of investing in Green Infrastructure. This conference is co-organised by the European Commission (DG ENV), the EESC and the CoR in cooperation with European Parliaments intergroups.

Commissioner Karmenu Vella will present progress in the European Commission's Green Infrastructure strategy. Members of both Committees, policy makers, businesses, civil society and authorities will contribute with their views. It will also present best practices on how local and regional authorities as well as participative planning processes can boost the social, economic and environmental benefits from Green Infrastructure to European citizens.

    Your Europe, Your Say: It is your Europe, take your place!

    Young people want to be heard in political decision-making processes and call for access to the relevant political bodies. “We have the ideas, and we know what we want and what we need.”

    This was the main message at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)'s 6th Your Europe, Your Say event, which took place on 23 and 24 April in Brussels.

    Recent humanitarian tragedies in the Mediterranean - EESC statement

    In response to the deaths of thousands of people in the Mediterranean, the EESC plenary session, with deep sorrow and indignation, once again calls on the institutions of the European Union and Member States to take the necessary humanitarian actions and political decisions. The European Union has a responsibility to people fleeing war, persecution, conflict and poverty.

    A year and a half after the catastrophe in Lampedusa, tragedies continue to take place every day. Regarding the 10-point plan adopted by the EU Foreign and Home Affairs Ministers on 20 April, the EESC considers that it is essential to go beyond a security approach. A humanitarian approach, solidarity and a fair sharing of responsibilities should be the essential principles of a common immigration policy in the EU.
