EESC Information Newsletter - January 2022


Dear Madam, dear Sir,

I would like to wish you a lot of success and good health in this New Year, which meets us straight away with a lot of challenges, some of which we will touch upon during the EESC's first 2022 Plenary Session.

The first half of 2022 is a time of the French Presidency of the Council of the EU, which is why on Wednesday, January 19, we will hold a debate on its priorities, with Clément Beaune, Secretary of State for European Affairs in the French Government.

Also on Wednesday, I invite you to follow a discussion related to the European Year of Youth 2022, with the participation of Anne Kjær Bathel, representing the European Young Leaders' programme, Joe Elborn, Secretary General of the European Youth Forum, and Miriam Teuma, President of the European Steering Committee for Youth, Council of Europe.

I will be glad to welcome you at our plenary session. To that end, I invite you to use webstreaming, which will allow you to follow all the votes and discussions remotely.

Best regards,

Christa Schweng

EESC President
