This year's Civil Society Days will shine a light on the fundamental role of civil society organisations in ensuring and safeguarding both social cohesion and resilient democracy in Europe.

Europe is facing unprecedented and pressing challenges: a war on its soil, recovery from the COVID crisis, a game-changing energy crisis, but also many threats to its democratic model in a fast-changing, ever more digital world. This flagship EESC event event will address the resurgent, existential threats to democratic values in an open and inclusive conversation, debating questions such as:

  • How do we see participatory and deliberative democracy in the future?
  • How can we democratise the European economy?
  • How should civil society be funded?
  • What do digital rights mean to citizens?
  • What skills do we need to enhance democratic participation?

Join us at the EESC and be part of the debate with stakeholders and European institutions on the crucial role organised civil society has as an agent of change in overcoming the current crisis.
