The annual Civil Society Day is a major EESC initiative, organised in partnership with its Liaison Group with European civil society networks, bringing together key players in European and national civil society organisations, business leaders and entrepreneurs, academics, EU policy- and decision-makers and interested media. It provides a forum for dialogue on issues that matter to civil society stakeholders at European level.

This year's edition, whose title will be “Civil dialogue: a tool for better legislation in the general interest” aims at setting up principles and guidelines for a permanent and structured civil dialogue at European level.

The works of the conference will be based on the Road Map that was adopted at the NGO Forum in Riga in March 2015 and on how to implement it through specific actions.

While the morning will focus on how to engage citizens and the abovementioned Road Map, the afternoon session will handle three topics in participatory workshops, dealing with

  • How to make civil dialogue more effective in the policy making environment?
  • How to contribute to the social and civic dimension of governance?
  • How can civil dialogue contribute to the external dimension of European politics?
