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.
This leaflet is part of a series of publications published in the context of the cultural events organised by the EESC.
The EESC will host the photography exhibition "Kirja, a Finnish Story" featuring the work of the Belgian photographer, Noémie Kreitlow.
The word "kirja" means "book" in Finnish, and this perfectly reflects the spirit of her work. It can be approached as a story, the story of a place that was unknown to her until not long ago. The young photographer initially had no link with Finland, but she immediately fell in love with it after meeting a Finn who introduced her to his country.
The exhibition will be displayed at the EESC from 23/09 till 25/10/2019, within the framework of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
