Can a rights-based approach to climate action as well as embracing nature-based solutions for adaptation and mitigation shift the focus of climate action?

Trends in the EU from a civil society perspective

Fundamental Rights and the Rule of Law are key values of the European Union, as laid down in Article 2 of the Treaty on the European Union.

However, as Europe has been confronted with multiple crises and growing uncertainties, the respect for these values is increasingly challenged and the European civil society is experiencing 'shrinking space' in several areas.

Perception, fear, myth and prejudice continue to limit the understanding and acceptance of disability in workplaces everywhere. Most of society still looks at persons with disabilities as unable to work and thinks that accommodating them in the workplace is expensive.

The EESC is organising a public hearing on "Employment of persons with disabilities: how can we change society's view" on 13 November 2019, with the aim to present programmes and projects that prove that these perceptions are incorrect.

Your participation and input are most welcome!
