The EESC hosted the presentation of the study "Integrating the European Pillar of Social Rights into the roadmap for deepening Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union" on Thursday 4 July 2019, in meeting room VM3 in the VMA building.

The EESC will host the artwork exhibition "Post-industrial Societies: Art & Crisis of Values" featuring the work of the Spanish artist, Jesus Montoia Oribe.

On 18 and 19 June 2019, in the framework of the European Development Days, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in partnership with the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) is organising an exhibition entitled "Together for Inclusion - Inclusive development in action"
The exhibition - which presents the ten winning photos from the photo competition launched during the 2017 European Disability and Development Week - captures men, women and children with disabilities enjoying their right to education, work, culture, leisure, friendship and community. The exhibition was originally presented in the EESC, on December 2018, to mark the International Day of People with Disabilities.
The EESC will host the photography exhibition "Romanian landscapes of my heart" featuring the work of the well-known Romanian photographer, Sorin Onişor.
The exhibition will be displayed at the EESC from 23 April until 26 May 2019, in the context of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
The opening of the exhibition is planned to take place on 15 May 2019 to coincide with May's Plenary Session.
This exhibition travels back in time to 1958, to the first legal act of the EEC/EU, to highlight its historical significance.
Regulation 1/1958 has played a key role in building the EU in that it allows work to be carried out in each of the Member States' languages. In doing so it strengthens the participation of civil society and boosts the EU's democratic legitimacy.
The EESC will host the presentation of the "European Labour Authority" study on Tuesday 2 April 2019, in meeting room VM3 in the VMA building.

On the occasion of the Annual European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference, co-organised with the European Commission, the EESC will be hosting an artwork exhibition for the month of March 2019.

To commemorate the International Day of Women (8 March 2019), the EESC is organising on Wednesday 6 March the screening of the documentary "The Man who mends women" on the life and work of Dr Denis Mukwege.
In 2018, Dr Denis Mukwege, together with Nadia Murad, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict".
Two exhibitions will be on display simultaneously, one to present the artwork (paintings and drawings) of Eva Nevická from Slovakia, who gives meaning to the years that follow retirement through creativity, and a second one, a touring temporary exhibition, entitled "What's Old Anyway?", organised by the German Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
The idea for such a cultural event has been developed around the concept of lifelong learning, inspired by the thinking that older people can instil good examples in future generations: an opportunity for inspiration based on people who never quit life and are drawn into creativity, even after their working lives/labour market productive years have come to an end.
