“Make the Green Deal a Social Deal” - The Workers’ Voice category of the EESC is organising a meeting to debate important topic, and extract lessons on where to move forward in both social dialogue and legal initiatives. 

27/10/2021

In order to prepare its own-initiative opinion, the EESC is organising a remote public hearing on "Towards a new care model for the elderly: learning from the Covid-19 pandemic" on 27 October 2021.

The aim of the event is to gather input from other EU Institutions and civil society organisations.

We will debate around the following questions:

  • Which are the structural causes that have led to the elderly care systems to become some of the most contagious and lethal factors of this pandemic?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the various care models in the EU?
  • Which are the civil society perspective and proposals for a new care model for the elderly?

Your participation and input are most welcome!

GDP is the best-known measure of macro-economic activity. While it is used both by policy-makers around the world and in public debates, it was not designed to be a comprehensive measure of prosperity and well-being. Thus, other indicators are needed to assess and address the global challenges of the 21st century such as climate change, poverty, resource depletion and to promote health and a higher quality of life. Beyond GDP indicators should become instruments to not only monitor and measure, but also to inform policy development, improve communication and encourage target setting. Against this background, the Section for Economic and Monetary Union and Economic and Social Cohesion (ECO) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is currently working on an own-initiative opinion on 'Beyond GDP measures for a successful recovery and a sustainable and resilient EU economy'.

Fundamental rights and the rule of law

The conference will cover developments in the EU in the area of fundamental rights and the rule of law in 2020-2021. It will offer a space for dialogue amongst stakeholders, in particular the ones which contributed to country visits led by the EESC Fundamental Rights and Rule of Law (FRRL) Group in 2020-2021 and to the first two European Commission Rule of Law Reports published in 2020 and 2021. The discussions during the day, including in parallel breakout sessions, will focus on the four key themes which structure the European Rule of Law Mechanism: Justice, Media, Corruption, Checks and balances.
