  • 7 Mar 2014 International Women's Day

    International Women’s day is a moment to celebrate the progress made towards gender equality and to thank all those working tirelessly to achieve it. It is also a time to reflect on reality. The reality is that the vast majority of women are still underpaid, under-represented and under-valued throughout the world from Europe to Asia, to Africa to the Americas and beyond. This is as true on the shop floor as it is in top management. It is as true in the home as it is in in the workplace. And it is as unacceptable as it is outrageous.

    Together, we need to make a difference for the sake of humankind!

    EESC Exhibition: “Home away from home. Making a 'non-place' into a place to live.”

    The photo exhibition created by Claudine Celva in the ONU city (located between Haine-St.Pierre and La Hestre, Belgium), shows the transformation of a series of social dormitories and accommodations built in haste to offer a home for the immigrants who came to work in the Belgian mines.

    The consequence of their arrival is the construction of a true city. In a few decades this place has become a place to live and not only to survive. 

    The heroes of this adventure are the immigrants, their sons and theirs grand-children. They will join us during the opening to share this successful experience of integration.

    The exhibition opening will take place on 26 February 2014 at 18:30 (registration required at: events@eesc.europa.eu).
