European Consumer Day 2019
On 27 March 2019, the EESC organised its 21st edition of the European Consumer Day in Brussels. With young consumers at the heart of the programme, and the trends in consumption patterns driven by technology, we were talking about the role played by young people in this change and how they can influence the policy that affects them directly. Three key sectors for young people were the subject of participatory workshops to discuss issues and opportunities in mobility, food and clothing. A live debate also was held on the influence of social media on young people.
