    At its most recent Plenary Session the Economic and Social Council adopted two resolutions on the future of the EU. The main topics of the resolutions are the economic and social dimensions for a stronger and more solidary Europe. Ever since 2015, ESC has actively participated through its own acts and organized discussions in European debates on the future of the EU. With the latest adopted resolutions, ESC expressed the main positions of the Bulgarian organized civil society on the most recent issues to be resolved next May during the summit of European leaders in Romania. In both resolutions, ESC urges the EU to maintain its unity and develop as a strong and competitive alliance and as a fair and solidary community.

    The participants at the high level conference, which took place on 15 May, were convinced that the enlargement of the EU, and in particular the spread of its democratic values and legal standards to the Western Balkan region, was in the interest of both the Western Balkan countries and the EU. Promoting EU values in the region guarantees security and stability, enhances social and economic development, as well as democracy and the rule of law in these countries which in turn means stability and security for the EU.

    This year's Civil Society Days will take place right after the plenary session at which the European Economic and Social Committee celebrates its 60th anniversary. The focus of this Civil Society Days will be on fostering the current debate about the future of Europe and on highlighting the role across Europe of the civil society organisations which come together in the EESC to represent "Europe at work". In line with this twofold emphasis, the CivSocDays 2018 will address Europe at work in relation to a dimension which has permeated our everyday working and living environment and will affect and shape our future, as well as the future of Europe: the digital world.

    Les personnes qui ont participé à la Journée de l’ICE 2017 ont eu la chance d’assister à un tournant dans l’histoire de l’initiative citoyenne européenne, lorsque Frans Timmermans, premier vice-président de la Commission européenne, a annoncé la révision tant attendue de l’instrument. La proposition de nouveau règlement de la Commission européenne a suivi peu de temps après et s’est concrétisée en septembre 2017 dans le cadre d’un train de mesures prioritaire accompagnant le discours sur l’état de l’Union.
