The EESC is organising a public hearing in the context of preparing an opinion on European philanthropy at the request of the Romanian Presidency. The hearing will focus on the following questions:

  • Which measures and initiatives should be taken at EU and national level to promote organised philanthropy?
  • How can the EU eliminate barriers within the internal market that are hindering the realisation of philanthropy's full potential?
  • How can philanthropy contribute to EU values, such as cohesion, social justice and European Policies, and to the competitiveness of the European economy?

The results of the hearing will feed into the EESC’s work on the opinion.

Your presence is most welcome!

Citizenship, Democracy & Culture in digitalised Europe

This year's Civil Society Days will take place right after the plenary session at which the European Economic and Social Committee celebrates its 60th anniversary.

The focus of this Civil Society Days will be on fostering the current debate about the future of Europe and on highlighting the role across Europe of the civil society organisations which come together in the EESC to represent "Europe at work".
In line with this twofold emphasis, the CivSocDays 2018 will address Europe at work in relation to a dimension which has permeated our everyday working and living environment and will affect and shape our future, as well as the future of Europe: the digital world.
