The EESC Study Group on Disability Rights is organising a public hearing on "Persons with disabilities as a human capital: their contribution to the economy and society".
The aim of the event is to look into how persons with disabilities have been able to bring a positive change in the organisations that employ them.
Based on inspiring testimonies and presentations of good practices, we will try to identify the policy changes required to facilitate this process and what employers and organised civil society can do to help bringing them about.

Your presence and input are most welcome!

The EU-Africa economic and social stakeholders' network will first deal with the up-coming EU-Africa Action Plan for the period 2018-2020. The annual meeting will specifically address migration and economic issues, focusing on the implications for young people. The youth focus is essential as young people clearly represent an increasingly important proportion of African populations. Moreover, youth unemployment in both Africa and Europe is a shared concern of economic and social actors. It is helping to feed migration flows, especially for young Africans who are facing a lack of prospects.
