The EESC is organising a public hearing in the context of preparing an opinion on European philanthropy at the request of the Romanian Presidency. The hearing will focus on the following questions:

  • Which measures and initiatives should be taken at EU and national level to promote organised philanthropy?
  • How can the EU eliminate barriers within the internal market that are hindering the realisation of philanthropy's full potential?
  • How can philanthropy contribute to EU values, such as cohesion, social justice and European Policies, and to the competitiveness of the European economy?

The results of the hearing will feed into the EESC’s work on the opinion.

Your presence is most welcome!

In the second half of 2019, Finland will hold for the third time the presidency of the Council of the European Union. This is a crucial period when the EU faces many environmental, economic, social and societal challenges, including the still-ongoing Brexit process and threats from populist forces in the Member States.
