The Policy Lab: Sustainable Prosperity made in Europe

The task of the next European Commission is clear: transforming our economic system so as to make sustainable prosperity possible. The new president has taken up this challenge. Within the first 100 days in office a Green Deal will be presented. For this agenda to succeed, the EU must rethink economic policy. The global challenges we face require political creativity that can master the art of dealing with todays complexity in policymaking.

The Policy Lab “Sustainable Prosperity – made in Europe” aims to spark this political creativity and innovation by bringing together 35-40 members of the commission and selected experts in the field of the economic transition. Through the potential of co-creative methods, the participants will elaborate on bold yet feasible options to embed wellbeing, meaning and sustainability into economic policymaking.

Confirmed panelists include:
Marco Buti | Director-General, DG Economic and Financial Affairs
Jean-Eric Paquet | Director-General, DG Research & Innovation
Astrid Schomaker | Director, Global Sustainable Development, DG Environment
Barbara Kauffmann | Director, Employment & Social Governance, DG Employment
