On 1st March 2017, the European Commission presented its White Paper on the Future of Europe. In setting out the state of its discussion on the European Union (EU) and five scenarios for Europe by 2025, it made a positive contribution to the debate of the European Council held in Rome on 25th March 2017 for the anniversary of the founding Treaty of the European Union.
The ESEC is pleased with the will expressed by the Commission to open a wide debate on the way in which Europe should evolve over the next decade.
The ESEC also applauds the initiative of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) that wished to organise 27 national debates in member States in order to consult organised civil society on the White Paper and the various scenarios being considered.
