Youth Challenging Disinformation

"Your Europe, Your Say!" is the EESC's annual event for young people. Schools from all of the 27 EU Member States, the 5 EU candidate countries and a Brussels-based European school are invited to apply to take part and one school from each country is then selected at random. 

This year, the discussions will focus on disinformation and fake news. The goal of the event will be to raise awareness of the dangers of disinformation and to encourage the participants to become more active in the fight against fake news. 

Stay tuned for the launch of the event, expected in October 2021!

In order to prepare its own-initiative opinion, the EESC is organising a public hearing on "Towards a new care model for the elderly: learning from the Covid-19 pandemic" on 27 October 2021.

The aim of the event is to gather input from other EU Institutions and civil society organisations.

We will debate around the following questions:

  • Which are the structural causes that have led to the elderly care systems to become some of the most contagious and lethal factors of this pandemic?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the various care models in the EU?
  • Which are the civil society perspective and proposals for a new care model for the elderly?

Your participation and input are most welcome!

In order to reshape the European economy and in line with the objectives stated by the European Commission for a more sustainable, greener and digitalised economy, investments must support environmental goals and remove obstacles to corporate dividend policymaking and payments. Among many other factors, the debt-equity bias in the corporate tax systems affects both the leverage of firms and corporate governance. The EESC welcomes the recent public consultation on a new initiative to mitigate the debt-equity bias in corporate taxation launched by the European Commission and shares the Commission's view that companies should contribute to the achievement of a greener, sustainable and digitalised economy.

Expert Hearing

The European Commission published on 14th July 2021 a proposal for reviewing the EU Directive on Energy Efficiency, aimed at further stimulating EU efforts to promote energy efficiency and achieve energy savings in the fight against climate change. The proposal forms part of the Fit for 55 package.  

The aim of the hearing is to exchange views with experts from public and private sector on the review of the Energy Efficiency Directive put forward by the European Commission.
