From 17 to 19 March 2016, the EESC welcomed 99 students and 33 teachers from the 28 Member States of the European Union (EU) and the five candidate countries for EU accession, for the seventh edition of Your Europe, Your Say! This event  gave these young people a chance to see how EESC decision-making works and debate some of the key social and political issues currently faced by Europe.

This year, young people debated on migrants in Europe - the topic of Your Europe, Your Say! They had a chance to speak to policy-makers about better asylum rules and make practical suggestions regarding integration that could be taken up in their own community.

The EESC has received a request from the incoming Dutch EU Presidency for an exploratory opinion on how to achieve more sustainable food systems in a resource-constrained world. In the past few years, civil society has been increasingly concerned about the environmental, economic and social impact of unsustainable food chains. Globally, about one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted. Food is also one of the most important drivers of environmental pressures. The hearing will represent an opportunity to hear from experts and stakeholders about their views and initiatives for a transition to more sustainable food systems in Europe. The discussion will take a holistic and systemic approach by considering the environmental, economic and social dimensions of sustainability and the importance of cross-sectoral co-operation across the food supply chain.
