On 19 November 2015, Eurofound, Cedefop and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will hold a joint event to present recent findings and initiatives on work organisation and workplace learning. The event will mark the 40 year anniversary of Cedefop and Eurofound, EU agencies with a governing structure of employers, trade unions and governments. It will also be an occasion to recognise the EESC’s support in setting up the agencies as well as its strong tripartite role in EU policymaking.
This meeting, jointly organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Committee of the Regions (CoR) will aim to demonstrate the mobilisation of actors like the civil society, cities and regions for COP 21 and their concrete action on climate as well as promote strong messages contributing to the shaping of the global climate agreement.
