As part of the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties, the EESC, together with the Italian Council of Ministers and under the patronage of the Italian Parliament, is organising a conference on Sixty years of the European community — Let's shape the future, on 13 March 2017 at the Chamber of Deputies in Rome.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate a reflection on the future of the EU, particularly with regard to European civil society’s commitment to contribute to pursuing full European integration. This contribution, which has always characterised the EESC’s commitment over these 60 years, is all the more indispensable at a time when the EU must respond to the many crises with cohesive and unified policies.

For the 4th time, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Serbia held the Civil Society Joint Consultative Committee (JCC).

It is also a platform to discuss issues of common interest and to inform the public at large of the challenges ahead during the accession period.
