Talking to Janos

This morning I learnt the terribly sad news that Janos Toth, a former EESC member (Hungary, Various Interests) and distinguished President of the TEN Section and currently a delegate of the Committee’s Consultative Committee on Industrial Change had passed away in his hotel room here in Brussels. Characteristically, he was here to attend a meeting of the Association of Former Members of the Committee, for Janos was an enthusiastic and passionate member of the Committee and supporter of the concept of participatory democracy and the importance of  civil dialogue. He was young, dynamic and committed and still had so much to give to Hungarian and European civil society. He will be deeply missed and our hearts go out to his family and friends.
