In order to prepare its own-initiative opinion, the EESC is organising a 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'.

Youth Challenging Disinformation

"Your Europe, Your Say!" is the EESC's annual event for young people. Schools from all of the 27 EU Member States, the 5 EU candidate countries and a Brussels-based European school are invited to apply to take part and one school from each country is then selected at random. 

This year, the discussions will focus on disinformation and fake news. The goal of the event will be to raise awareness of the dangers of disinformation and to encourage the participants to become more active in the fight against fake news. 

Stay tuned for the launch of the event, expected in October 2021!
