CAP reform and the Single European Transport Area at the EESC's October plenary session


At its upcoming plenary session, to be held on 26-27 October, the European Economic and Social Committee will hold two important debates. The first will focus on the new White Paper on Transport to be presented by Siim Kallas, European Commission vice-president with responsibility for transport. The second will follow the presentation of the CAP reform package delivered by Dacian Cioloş, Commissioner for agriculture and rural development.



Venue:       József Antall building, room JAN 2Q2, European Parliament, Brussels

Schedule:  Wednesday, 26 October

4 p.m.: Commissioner Kallas at plenary session


Thursday, 27 October


8.30 a.m.: Press breakfast with EESC member Madi Sharma, launching an EESC online database of good practices for the protection of children against sexual abuse

9.30 a.m.: Commissioner Cioloş at plenary session


Commissioner Siim Kallas will present the EC strategy "Transport 2050", aimed at increasing mobility, removing major barriers and fuelling growth and employment. Some 60 proposals have been proposed in this white paper, which is designed to reduce Europe's dependence on imported oil and cut carbon emissions in transport by 60% by 2050. The Committee plans to adopt its opinion on the Commission's paper, arguing for more coherence between the objectives, the ways in which they would be achieved and the financing required to achieve them. The Committee will recommend in its opinion that the Commission should allocate sufficient funds to transport infrastructure in the post-2013 Multiannual Financial Framework - (EESC Rapporteur Pierre Jean Coulon and co-rapporteur Stefan Back).


EESC President Staffan Nilsson, who welcomes the new CAP's enhanced focus on the environment and sustainability, has invited Commissioner Dacian Cioloş to take part in a debate with EESC members, including EESC Aggriculture Section President Mario Campli. Commissioner Cioloş will present the Commission's legislative package for CAP reform after 2013, which was presented on 12 October. The centrepiece of the proposal is the redistribution of EU direct payments across and within Europe, intended to reduce existing discrepancies between the levels of payments between farmers, regions and Member States. Stronger emphasis is also placed on "green agriculture" and young and small-scale farmers. The package, which should enter into force by January 2014, will be the subject of discussions among the EU institutions and may be adopted by the end of 2012.


The 475th EESC plenary session will open with a brief tribute to Mario Sepi, former Committee president, who passed away on 10 October.


To find out more, please check the Plenary session agenda or the Press breakfast webpage.

The debates with the commissioners will be broadcast on Europe by Satellite.

Subject: Poet in the City - Lost and Found - 3rd November

if you cannot see this email in all its glory please click here

Taking place from 6.30pm
on Thursday 3rd November
at the V&A Museum of Childhood
Cambridge Heath Road, Bethnal Green
London E2 9PA

The event itself will start promptly at 7pm

Poet in the City is delighted to invite you to an event marking National Adoption Week and featuring two celebrated authors who have written compellingly about their own experiences of adoption. The experience of adoption is difficult for all sides of the adoption triangle but willing parents are still needed for the very many 'children who wait' in Britain today. If you are an adopted person, an adoptive parent, or simply interested in children or in poetry then do not miss this moving, funny and thought provoking evening.

Jeanette Winterson is the author of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (1985), The Passion (1987) and many other novels including two books for children, Tanglewreck (2007) and The Battle of the Sun (2009). She will be reading from her new memoir about her childhood and the effects of adoption in a creative life. Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? is published by Jonathan Cape on 27 October 2011.

Jackie Kay's first book of poetry The Adoption Papers (1991) is an emotional account of her early life. More recently, she is the author of Red Dust Road (2010) – the story of finding her birth father and mother – and Fiere (2011 - both Picador), a book of poems coming out of that experience.

The event will be chaired by Margaret Reynolds, Professor of English at Queen Mary, University of London, presenter of BBC Radio 4 'Adventures in Poetry', and the author of The Sappho History (2003). She is also an adoptive mother.

Dear All,

Dear Colleague


Outside Chance delivers high impact, early intervention, thought provoking, behaviour challenging workshops - 'It's YOUR Choice!' - in Greater London secondary schools. Almost 100,000 young Londoners have attended our workshops since 2003. Our approach is born out of 13 years' experience of working with more than 5,000 very challenging juvenile offenders in a number of male young offender units including HM YOI Feltham.  We are regularly seeing young men in HM YOI Feltham who are now starting out on 15, 18 and 20 year minimum sentences, in many cases, NOT because of what they actually did in terms of committing crime but because of the group or gang with which they were involved.


Thanks to some NEW two-year funding from The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, we are able to offer FREE workshops in the borough on a first come, first served basis.


We have attached a pdf of feedback from students and teaching staff who have seen our workshops to give you some indication of the impact we can make on young people's thought processes. Feedback can also be viewed on our website at A breakdown of workshop content and more about our approach can be found on our website at


If you wish us to visit your Hammersmith and Fulham school or youth group, please call us on 020 8563 7700 or email with your contact details and we will get in touch with you.


Our diary availability can be found at our online diary at Choose a free date and then give us a call.


We look forward to hearing from you in due course.


Best wishes
