 Green, digital and social recovery: How the recovery plans are supporting a wellbeing economy for people and planet? 
 On 22 October 2021, the EESC will hold an online event on ”Green, digital and social recovery – How the recovery plans are supporting a wellbeing economy for people and planet?”.
Europe is facing many challenges as a result of the pandemic of COVID-19. Crisis management and recovery is in the focus of the activities of the European Institutions and the Member States in 2021.

The three Observatories of the European Economic and Social Committee were following the negotiations of the new multiannual financial framework for 2021-27 and the Next Generation EU. It is crucial to ensure that recovery funding is sustainable as well as inclusive, and that it entails a ‘bounce forward’ for progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promotion of wellbeing-related goals, rather than a return to business as usual.

The main purpose of this event is to present and discuss about the involvement of civil society in the implementation of the recovery plans, through concrete examples. The event will focus on three economic sectors in transition to analyse the opportunities and challenges to shift towards a wellbeing economy, aligned with the SDG Agenda. The three panels on energy, car industry and digitalisation will have a regional kick off presentation of the underlying main drivers, potentials and challenges and will be based on concrete national experience. Each panel will allow time for contributions from participants.The programme is available here. This event contributes to the process of the Conference on the Future of Europe. Please register through this registration form. Registration is possible until Tuesday 20 October, 12.00 p.m. A link will be shared with registered persons before the event.
