Towards transformational local development policies

On 28 November 2022 the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and ECOLISE will hold an event in the context of the annual Communities for Future Week, a week-long series of events at EU, national and regional levels that will explore how best to support ongoing work led by communities on climate change and sustainability in Europe.


In order to prepare its report on "Violation of sanctions/EU crimes'', the EESC is organising a hybrid public hearing on 25th November 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The aim of the event is to gather input from policy makers, civil society organisations, academics and social partners, which will feed into the EESC's opinion.

The EU DAG will also discuss with the expert how to take the desk study on supply chains further.

The event will look at different perspectives: the institutional/political perspective, what is happening on the ground, and then to the progress of integrating refugees in the EU, focussing on employment, education and housing.

International Ocean Governance in need of a multidisciplinary approach

International Ocean Governance is a particularly relevant topic in light of the problems that oceans and seas are currently facing, and one where the EU is leading by example. Policies aimed at reducing the impact of unsustainable human activities at sea, such as overfishing, have become tradition in Europe, and the Union is now trying to involve the rest of the world in a common effort to protect the marine environment.
