The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) presents the EESC European Award for Excellent Design and Sustainability in cooperation with the LifeCare Initiative.
As part of the EESC's food waste initiative, one of the "Wind of Change" projects supported by the Committee's president, Mr Malosse, the EESC is hosting this photo exhibition.
The European Economic and Social Committee will be welcoming four European writers from Greece, Belgium and Bulgaria with two points in common: their passion for travelling and a strong interest in culture, arts and social change.
After each reading the writers will be glad to answer all your questions and, weather permitting, the literary lunches will take place from 12.30 until 2 p.m. on the terrace of the Jacques Delors building, where you are invited to enjoy a lunch.
Every year since 2007 the EESC organises four literary lunches, which usually take place in the month of June. This year the literary lunches will concentrate on the subject of travel.
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is extremely honoured to be celebrating the centenary of the birth of the renowned Bulgarian opera singer, Boris Christoff, in association with Bulgaria’s Minister of Culture, the Permanent Representation of the Republic of Bulgaria to the European Union and UNESCO.
Boris Christoff is widely considered to be one of the 20th century’s greatest basses and one of its most intense and moving voices. Born in Bulgaria, he embarked on a career in law before entering the world of opera. He found success in Italy and was a true European, who witnessed some of Europe’s darkest moments.
The EESC is keen to play a part in keeping alive and promoting the memory of luminaries from European civil society and figures who have marked Europe’s cultural life, by making people aware of their life and work. In this case, in view of Boris Christoff’s talent and presence and the universal power of music, this undertaking will undoubtedly be crowned with success.
