Public Hearing "EU Forest Strategy: fit for purpose?"
Brussels, Belgium

20 May 2019, Brussels, Belgium

Organiser: European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

The European Economic and Social Committee will in 2019 issue an opinion from the perspectives of organised civil society on the EU's Forest Strategy "A new EU Forest Strategy: for forests and the forest sector" in light of the Commission's progress report. The strategy engages the Commission, Member States and stakeholders to work together towards a common vision and a coherent planning and implementation of forest-related policies.

As a part of its preparation and fact-finding, the EESC traditionally invites representatives of concerned organisations within the EU and outside for a public hearing to share views from anywhere in the spectrum of organised civil society.
