The EESC is organising an online public hearing to gather stakeholders' and civil society's views on the new EU Forest Strategy for 2030, which will feed into the preparation of the EESC opinion on this topic.
The European Economic and Social Committee will in 2019 issue an opinion from the perspectives of organised civil society on the
New EU Forest Strategy: for forests and the forest sector in the light of the Commission's progress report. This public hearing will host representatives of concerned organisations within the EU and outside to share views from anywhere in the spectrum of organised civil society.
