Editorial

Dear Readers,

In this edition I would like to mention two main topics to which the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has been dedicating much attention and work lately.  One of them is the devastating war that is still going on in Ukraine and its consequences. The other one is the follow up to the Conference on the Future of Europe, which implies a possible new role for the EESC and an occasion for further cooperation with the civil society organisations represented in the Liaison Group.

Beyond the fact that they both make the headlines, I see a link between the two: the decisive role of civil society organizations (CSOs) and citizens. In Ukraine, they are the greatest strength of the country and force our admiration. In the European Union, CSOs and citizens discussed the most important issues for EU's future during the Conference and issued proposals that now deserve an honest follow-up.
