    2015: we can make the difference.

    Dear Friends,

    With this year drawing to a close, we reflect on the problems Europeans are currently facing in Europe, including systemic difficulties such as unemployment, dwindling faith in the EU and its institutions and conflicts that are giving rise to forced migration. But the coming of the New Year also brings hope, as 2015 will begin with a new and restructured Commission, a newly formed European Parliament, and a new President of the European Council.

    The good news is that the European project is very deeply rooted, being anchored in the hearts and souls of millions of our fellow citizens. But for the European Union to be able to meet people's needs and expectations, we need to see major changes, which must be embarked on without delay.

    I am certain that together, we can make the difference.

    I wish you very happy holidays and a good start of the New Year, full of joy!


    Henri Malosse,

    President of the European Economic and Social Committee

    The ESCs and the expectations of European civil society - 14/11/2014 - Paris

    Lack of trust, democratic divide… What concrete levers do we have today to achieve greater proximity between political leaders and European citizens?

    The day after the renewal of the EU institutions (Parliament, Commission and the European Council President), what can be done to encourage citizens to take part more in the political debates in Brussels and Strasbourg?

    By what means can the national ESCs and the European ESC, as places of dialogue between different socio-occupational categories but also citizen representation, contribute to reducing the democratic divide in Europe? Proposing answers to these key issues for the future of Europe is the ambition of this symposium.
