    Conference - Brussels, Belgium

    Currently under review, Europe 2020 is the EU's sole long-term strategy. Despite the fact that Europe is showing the first signs of slight economic recovery, the social crisis is still deepening. Europe has to find its way out and reinvent its jobs and growth strategy. Therefore the EESC is organizing a conference based on interactive stakeholders' involvement, with the focus on present and future social, economic and environmental challenges. This will be an occasion for policy makers and stakeholders to engage in a constructive debate in order to focus the reform efforts on making the EU more resilient.

    Let's speak sustainable construction - Multilingual glossary EN/FR/DE/ES - Second Edition

    Following the great success of the first edition of this innovative guide to the terminology of sustainable construction in the EU, the EESC together with its partner CEMBUREAU and European Architects' Council has improved and updated the publication and is now launching the 2nd edition, both as a practical printed spiral bound booklet and an online and mobile version.

    In response to the need for more sustainable construction, new concepts, phrases, terms and expressions are being used in the construction industry across Europe. These concepts are aimed at improving the environmental, social and economic impact of the industry and its outputs. From Air Source Heat Pumps to Net Zero Carbon Buildings; from Whole Life Costing to Photovoltaic Electricity; from Recycled Resources to Passive House; it is important that the industry reaches a common understanding of these terms – to speak a common language for sustainable construction – in order to provide a base for harmonised development in the future.

    Second Edition for this version only

    A new global partnership - European Civil Society Positions on the Post-2015 Framework - Conference conclusions

    On 13 and 14 February 2014, over 150 civil society representatives gathered at the EESC to discuss their positions on a global Post-2015 framework for sustainable development. Participants from local, regional and national authorities, EU and UN level policy-makers, social partners, environment, development, human rights, agriculture and consumer organisations; industry, business and academia brought a wealth of perspectives into the debate. This summary of key points, prepared by the Conference organisers, will be brought to the attention of EU decision-makers in order to contribute to the formulation of a strong EU negotiating position on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda.

    Staffan Nilsson`s address at the UDI Congress France EESC members come from different organisations in EU Member States. As is the case in the French Council, while remaining actively involved in our organisations in our home countries, we travel regularly to Brussels to attend meetings. Internally the EESC is divided into six sections, each of which deals with a major EU policy area: economic and monetary union, the internal market, agricultural policy and the environment, employment and social affairs, transport and energy, and external relations. In 2006 the EU's sustainability strategy was given a new impetus. In the EESC we decided to reflect the cross-cutting nature of sustainability in a separate body able to work in a cross-cutting way. We therefore set up a Sustainable Development Observatory with members from all sections, with a view to achieving a cross-cutting approach to the subject. As far as I can see, this is an unprecedented development in the EU institutional set-up.
