On 25 March 2020, the EESC and Arizmendiarrieta Foundation are hosting a half-day conference "Towards a new European company model for the 21st century" in Brussels (EESC premises, room VMA3) with a debate focusing on the role of businesses in today's society.

At a time when markets are not working as well as they should, inequalities are rising and the environment is suffering, companies can play a crucial role and change the rules of the game. They can do so by putting people and the planet at the core of their model – that is by going back to the humanistic roots of Europe's culture.

Identifying the priorities and needed actions

The current EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies runs till 2020 and is coming to an end soon.  A new initiative for Roma integration is currently being developed.

To strive towards a more effective post-2020 initiative, a thorough evaluation of the current framework is necessary.  This hearing seeks to offer a platform to assess the current framework's shortcomings and achievements, with a view to identifying the areas that still necessitate action. It will also feature a discussion geared towards providing recommendations for the upcoming post-2020 strategy.
