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.


On Thursday 10 June at 10:00 we will examine the New Strategy for the Implementation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights and the European Democracy Action Plan with Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice.


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. It will be an opportunity to gather ideas, proposals and momentum to launch debates with citizens all around the continent, with deep awareness of the responsibility to make this Conference a life-changing exercise with a meaningful outcome. The event's participants include: Guy Verhofstadt, Dubravka Šuica, Apóstolos Tzitzikóstas, Eva Maydell and many other significant guests. You can follow a live broadcast here.
