Focus of the Month: Treaty of Rome 60th Anniversary

In order to commemorate this year’s anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, many events and meetings will be taking place this March in Rome. On 25 March the informal Rome Summit will mark the 60th Anniversary. Around that day the EC is going to publish its White Paper on the Future of the EU and the Social Dimension of the European Monetary Union and the Communication on the Pillar of Social Rights will be publish in the end of April. The Civil Society Europe will organise a meeting of European CSOs and their members, which will gather for a common event in the afternoon of 24 March. On the 25th, all organisations are invited to events of the ‘Our Europe’ coalition.

Moreover, a committee including leading organisations from the social, environmental, consumers, cultural, women’s organisations, students, anti racism, development cooperation, associations for migrants and asylum seekers, elderly people, the European Movement Italy, and the trade union confederations had been set up. The Committee adopted a common declaration “Our Europe, united, Democratic and in solidarity”  that civil society organisations are invited to endorse.
