Public Service and Citizenship

In view of the next Belgian and European elections, the EESC, in partnership with the Brussels Commissioner for Europe and International Organisations, brings together staff from across European institutions and Belgian representatives to discuss the participation of European civil servants in Belgian life.

This event will be an occasion to dig deeper into the role of public service as the engine of the European project, whilst at the same time discuss different ways of involving EU staff in local political and community life.

The event will take place on-site in the Jacques Delors building, rue Belliard 99, as well as online (Teams) for those who cannot attend physically.
