The European Economic and Social Committee will hold a conference to shape the new EU agenda for disability rights 2020-2030 on 26 February 2020 in the EESC's premises.

The aim of the conference is to present the EESC's proposal for the new strategy at a crucial moment in the EU landscape. With a new European Commission, a new European Parliament and a new budget programming period, it is now the perfect timing for a new Disability Strategy that fully takes into account the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCPRD), the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The conference will tackle various areas of work of the EU, drawing attention to the crosscutting character of disability rights.

Your presence and input are most welcome!

On 25 March 2020, the EESC is hosting a half-day conference "Towards a new European company model for the 21st century" in Brussels (EESC premises, room VMA3) with a debate focusing on the role of businesses in today's society. At a time when markets are not working as well as they should, inequalities are rising and the environment is suffering, companies can play a crucial role and change the rules of the game. They can do so by putting people and the planet at the core of their model – that is by going back to the humanistic roots of Europe's culture. As job creators and providers of goods and services, businesses represent the ideal driver for new economic models that meet social and environmental criteria, by promoting transformative initiatives in the area of self-regulation and co-responsibility. They can thus be key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015.
