The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), are looking to hear your views on the issues addressed in the European Commission’s communication for a European Pillar of Social Rights  at an event on 2 November in the Lighthouse, Glasgow from 1-5pm (lunch included).

The event will include discussions around:

  • What do you consider to be the most urgent economic and social challenges in the UK and Europe, following the vote on 'Brexit'? What is needed to address these?
  • What do you think should be done to tackle the problems facing employment and the world of work in the UK and Europe, meeting the needs of workers, job seekers, employers and enterprises?
