Coming back stronger! Ways forward for culture

On Wednesday, six political Groups of the European Parliament will be holding an online event to give voice to expert opinions on how the Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSIs) can recover from the devastating COVID-19 crisis by reopening cultural events and venues. The event will also feature MEPs such as ECR’s Andrey Slabakov and will conclude with a live performance of Laura Crowe and Him. More information about the programme is available here.

When: Wednesday @ 10:00

Old continent growing older - possibilities and challenges related to ageing policy post-2020

On Thursday, the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs will vote on ECR Rapporteur Beata Szydło’s own initiative report “Old continent growing older - possibilities and challenges related to ageing policy post-2020”. The text focuses on the progressive ageing of European society and the numerous consequences of this phenomenon. MEP Szydło believes that the decreasing proportion of working-age citizens makes it more important than ever to create opportunities for older people in the labour market - by combating discrimination, but also by fighting digital exclusion and offering learning and training opportunities. The report also highlights the need for adequate health care and long-term care for older people, especially in the context of the pandemic. The importance of solidarity and intergenerational exchange – be it in the context of private life or professional environments – as well as adjusting public space to the needs of older people are stressed.

Vote: Thursday @ 9:00

The situation of Amazon employees

On Thursday, the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs will host a hearing on the situation of Amazon employees in connection with several press publications revealing violations of labour rights of Amazon employees that have been published in the past months. MEPs and experts will have the opportunity to verify reports revealed in the media about Amazon potentially monitoring its workers and other business and workplace practices, which might be in breach of European labour, data and privacy laws.

When: Thursday @ 13:45
