On 27 March 2019, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is organising its 21st edition of the European Consumer Day in Brussels, Belgium.
With young consumers at the heart of the programme, and the trends in consumption patterns driven by technology, participants will be talking about the role played by young people in this change and how they can influence the policy that affects them directly.
3 key sectors for young people will be the subject of participatory workshops: mobility, food, and clothing. There will also be a live debate on how social media impact young people and their consumer choices. And we will ask experts the following questions:
- How can we define young consumers? And which trends can be identified in their consumption patterns?
- Is the current EU consumer policy – based as it is on protection and ownership – adapted to today’s models of consumption?
- What are the potential regulatory developments to be considered in order to adapt consumer policy to these new models?
