Eutoday.net reports that the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) joined the European Parliament initiative – the Ukrainian Civil Society Hub – allowing the NGO Promote Ukraine to use part of its premises at rue de Trèves 74 (Brussels), along with logistical equipment.
In particular, the official handover ceremony, was held at the EESC Jacques Delors building on 20 April 2022. EESC President Christa Schweng welcomed the Ukrainian Civil Society Hub representatives, offering them a symbolic “free access” badge in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
Marta Barandiy, Chairwoman of NGO Promote Ukraine stressed, “The European institutions have given us the space to speak. Now, we receive the space to work. Space to cooperate with the European civil society.”
The offices and parking space at the building B68 (rue de Trèves 74), and administrative and logistical support (equipment, printing and IT services) will be used to coordinate the Ukrainian civil society actions.
