|The European Commission (in short EC) takes important decisions in Europe.
The EC can also propose new laws.
4 years ago the EC made a plan for the European Union (EU).
The plan was about making the EU a better place to live in.
The EC wants to know if the plan is working.
Organisations are asked to write to the EC and tell them their opinion.
The European Commission (EC) has launched a public appeal for consultation on the Europe 2020 Strategy earlier this month. The call for contributions on the implementation and current applicability of the strategy will be open until the 31 October of the same year.
Europe 2020 is a 10-year action plan designed by the EC and set in motion in March 2010 that supports “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”. Constructed around five main issues – employment, research and development, climate and energy, education and the fight against poverty and social exclusion – it takes the shape of a partnership for development between the European Union (EU) and the 28 Member States.
Through its appeal, the Commission is asking contributors from all over Europe to share knowledge, experiences and ideas in order to create a more rounded view of progress made in the four years since Europe 2020’s launch. Organisations and any other interested parties can express their views and help improve the general outlook and understanding of social policies in place.
