33 schools from across Europe selected to come to Brussels to discuss migration
The Western Balkans Civil Society High-Level Conference brought together EESC members, civil society representatives from the countries of the Western Balkans, as well as Czech officials and members of organised civil society. The conference complemented the work the EESC has already been undertaking by organising the Western Balkans Civil Society Forum every two years since 2006.
The main topics on the agenda were:
The EESC will host a public hearing in the context of its own-initiative opinion: Empowering youth to achieve sustainable development through education. The event aims to explore innovative ideas to foster opportunities and overcome challenges for the implementation of a transformative education for sustainable development.
The European Migration Forum – the dialogue platform on migration, asylum and migrant integration – will meet for the seventh time on 20-21 October 2022. Participation in the Forum meeting is by invitation only.
Participation in the Forum meeting is by invitation only - the call for interested organisations is now closed.
Category meeting centred around the question of Workers' Voice in EESC work and also in particular in the youth, dealing with the specific challenges of unionising young workers.
This interactive conference with experts in circular economy competences and youth, policy-makers, academics and business representatives will explore the outputs from the CESCY project.
The webinar will take place in the context of the European Year of Youth and the war in Ukraine.
The EESC is organising a virtual public hearing which will feed into its own-initiative opinion on “The EU Youth Test”. This opinion will look at how youth engagement can be fostered to bring a youth perspective into policy-making at all levels.
The aim of the hearing is to find out more about the experience of Member States already implementing the Youth Test and to look at youth participation in the context of Europe's future.
Your participation and input are most welcome!
The NAT section of the EESC will hold a public hearing on 26 April 2022 to engage stakeholders and civil society actors and discuss the engagement of young people towards achieving sustainable development. The conclusions of the hearing will feed into the preparation of the EESC information report on this topic.
While Europe and its societies are still in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the Conference on the Future of Europe in its closing stages, the EESC will be holding its annual Civil Society Days in March 2022.
