A Series on Progressive Governance
After living in a pandemic for more than a year and experiencing a decade of inequality, planet degradation, and threats to liberal democracies, bold structural reform is needed to leave no person or community behind. The Progressive Governance Digital Summit is a space where prominent constellations of leaders are brought together to encourage fresh strategies and approaches on how to implement progressive change.
This year’s summit aimed to lay the foundation for the 2020s defined by progress. Listen to our curation of intriguing sessions with guests such as Margrethe Vestager, Robert Habeck, Catherine de Vries, Cas Mudde, Tim Bale, Ania Skrzypek and more!
A Series on Empowering Cities
Cities are a major cause of greenhouse gas pollution. However, they are also the places driving change: From modernizing buildings to making mobility sustainable, cities have plenty of tools at their disposal to become climate-neutral. But the ecological transformation is expensive. So where does the money come from?
The American Rescue Plan is pumping 1.9 trillion dollars into citizens’ pockets, the economy, and measures against the Covid-19 pandemic. What has this meant for cities and urban spaces?
