The aim of the hearing is to find out more about the experience of Member States already implementing the Youth Test and to look at youth participation in the context of Europe's future.

On 8 June 2022, the EESC will hold a remote public hearing on "Enhancing labour mobility to support economic recovery".

The reallocation of workers across Member States provides opportunities for exchanges and skills transfer.

The hearing will represent a key contribution to the own-initiative opinion on the topic.

Invited speakers include representatives of the European institutions, of the social partners, as well as other civil society organisations.
