  • The EESC is organising a public hearing in the context of preparing an opinion on European philanthropy at the request of the Romanian Presidency. The hearing will focus on the following questions:

    • Which measures and initiatives should be taken at EU and national level to promote organised philanthropy?
    • How can the EU eliminate barriers within the internal market that are hindering the realisation of philanthropy's full potential?
    • How can philanthropy contribute to EU values, such as cohesion, social justice and European Policies, and to the competitiveness of the European economy?

    The results of the hearing will feed into the EESC’s work on the opinion.

    Your presence is most welcome!

    Citizenship, Democracy & Culture in digitalised Europe

    This year's Civil Society Days will take place right after the plenary session at which the European Economic and Social Committee celebrates its 60th anniversary.

    The focus of this Civil Society Days will be on fostering the current debate about the future of Europe and on highlighting the role across Europe of the civil society organisations which come together in the EESC to represent "Europe at work".
    In line with this twofold emphasis, the CivSocDays 2018 will address Europe at work in relation to a dimension which has permeated our everyday working and living environment and will affect and shape our future, as well as the future of Europe: the digital world.

    In the framework of the Estonian EU Presidency, the EESC is hosting an exhibition of pictures by photographers Aivar Pihelgas, Jaanus Ree, Ilmārs Znotinš, Jelena Rudi, Sven Začek and Rene Mitt, featuring scenes from one of the biggest amateur choral events in the world, involving thousands of choir singers and dancers dressed in colourful national garments.

     

  • The event will focus on the role of civil society in preventing radicalisation of young people. The debates will serve to clarify how EU policy-makers can help civil society practitioners to successfully prevent radicalisation. The first panel will cover different elements of anti-radicalisation policy, focusing on what is needed to increase success rates. The second panel will focus on the role of education in preventing radicalisation. Participants will share their view on what can be done to render more effective existing civil society initiatives aiming to prevent radicalisation.

    Photos by Czeslaw Czaplinski

    Photo exhibition on Andrzej Wajda, recently deceased Polish film director. Wajda is considered one of Poland’s greatest directors, who over his long career received an honorary Oscar and Palme d’Or. Many of his films were inspired by turbulent wartime and communist history.

    Although well known in Poland, Andrzej Wajda is not equally known in Europe and the exhibition would therefore aim at making its work and life known to a wider public. The photos were taken by Czeslaw Czaplinski, world-renowned artist photographer, journalist and documentary film maker.

    The exhibition will run from 21 December 2016 to 31 January 2017 – closing event on 25 January 2017.
