United in diversity

About this activity

This year, the EESC is focussing on what civil society organisations are doing in response to the migration crisis in Europe.

Under the common interinstitutional slogan of “United in diversity”, the Committee will also showcase its work on economic and social policy for the European Union, its work on sustainable development and its efforts to support participatory democracy in Europe and throughout the world.

On the day’s programme are a variety of information stands, fun activities for all, a photo booth, a children’s corner and musical events.

Visit the different stands to discover the EESC’s work  – its presidency, its three groups, its linguistic diversity and some of its spheres of activity:

  • the EESC and the migration crisis in Europe,

  • the EESC and growth, employment and solidarity,

  • the EESC and the environment, sustainable development and energy,

  • the EESC and participatory democracy, and

  • the EESC's international role.

Come and join us!


There will be a special area for children young and old, with face-painters, a balloon-modelling clown and a colouring workshop.

Educational games will help visitors learn more about the EESC, the migration crisis in Europe and other subjects such as the economy, employment, the environment, participatory democracy and the EU’s decision-making processes.
