The EESC issues between 160 and 190 opinions and information reports a year. 70% are referrals by the Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament. 21% are own-initiative opinions and information reports, while 9% are exploratory opinions generally requested by the country holding the EU Presidency.
It also organises several annual initiatives and events with a focus on civil society and citizens’ participation such as the Civil Society Prize, the Civil Society Days, the Your Europe, Your Say youth plenary and the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) Day.
