The EESC issues between 160 and 190 opinions and information reports a year.
It also organises several annual initiatives and events with a focus on civil society and citizens’ participation such as the Civil Society Prize, the Civil Society Days, the Your Europe, Your Say youth plenary and the ECI Day.
The EESC brings together representatives from all areas of organised civil society, who give their independent advice on EU policies and legislation. The EESC's326 Members are organised into three groups: Employers, Workers and Various Interests.
The EESC has six sections, specialising in concrete topics of relevance to the citizens of the European Union, ranging from social to economic affairs, energy, environment, external relations or the internal market.
Following the adoption of the EESC Information Report on the Implementation of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, the Committee is now promoting and giving it a reinforced follow-up using various communication channels, considering the relevance and the perfect timing of the subjects covered in the report.
In this context, for the purpose of presenting the main findings of this Information Report and also for marking the occasion of its adoption, which the EESC believes can play an important role in strengthening the relations between UK and EU civil society, a four-member EESC Delegation led by Mr Jack O'Connor (rapporteur and Chair of the EU-UK Follow-up Committee) will go on a mission to the UK, from 6 until 8 March.
