ESU in Liaison Group of Civil Society of EESC
The European Students’ Union has become alternate member of the EESC Liaison Group. ESU will be alternate to Life Long Learning Platform in the sector “Education and Training”.
The Liaison Group (LG) is the only structured and institutionalised link to EU institutions for civil society organisations operating at EU level. Not surprisingly, all main EU NGOs are there. The group allows its members to put forward their values, input and ideas toward the EESC and further on, through it, to the other institutions, but also among other NGOs who participate to it.
Advantages of joining the group include the possibility to shape political documents (e.g. mid-term revision of Europe 2020), spread news through the Liaison Group newsletter widely distributed to all EESC members, to LG members and their networks and to EU institutions.
