60 years of the European Community. Let’s shape the future!

Published In: 2017

On 13 March 2017, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) held a high-level conference in Rome to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding treaties of Europe, signed in Rome on 25 March 1957.

Entitled “60 years of European communities – Let's shape the future!”, the conference was held in the Chamber of Deputies in the Palazzo Montecitorio under the auspices of the Italian government and parliament.

In the context of the anniversary, the conference drew attention to important achievements of the Union which have made a difference to peoples' lives, and also explored current key concerns of European citizens.

This publication aims to capture the wealth of ideas that emerged during our major EESC conference celebrating the 60th anniversary of a historically unique project that has brought peace, prosperity, cooperation and a sense of shared identity to a once war-torn continent.
