Progressive Governance Symposium 2019 takes place on 25 AprilMore than 150 thinkers from Europe and the US will join the event.
Among the guests are Maja Göpel, Robert Habeck, Marije Laffeber, Tim Ryan, Stephan Weil and many more leading and emerging academics, activists and decision-makers from Europe and the US that are coming together to discuss their ideas for rejuvenating the progressive movement. How can progressive politics counter nationalism? How can we shift to a more sustainable and inclusive economic system? How can we ensure that everyone has a share in progress?
We have to talk! National-populist movements are on the march in Europe and the US, inequality is increasing in many countries and the trust in political centrism and political institutions is eroding.
Therefore, it is more important than ever that progressives come together and share their ideas and impulses for democratic innovation.
