Event Description

In 2015 the European Builders Confederation EBC celebrated its 25-year anniversary with a photo exhibition in the European Parliament on the role of women and young people to make construction SMEs more inclusive.

The European Economic and Social Committee will host this exhibition on "Portraits of women and young people in construction" from 17 February to 11 March 2016. The opening ceremony and welcome cocktail will take place on 17 February 2016 at the European Economic and Social Committee.

The exhibition featured photos depicting the passions, the efforts and the stories of young people and women working in construction trades. It showed how they got involved in the sector and what their take on the future is.

The construction sector is in urgent need of new talented and skilled people to replace retiring workers and cope with demand. It’s a win-win situation. Women and young people are the future of the sector.

Information on the registration will follow soon.
