On the same day at 17:30 our Members will discuss and vote on the EESC's contribution to the European Commission's 2022 work programme.

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.
I would also like to invite you to follow the EESC kick-off event in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe – Bringing the European project back to citizens, which will take place on 10 June from 14:30 to 18:30.
