The Progressive Governance Series is a regular gathering of progress-oriented actors to map out a social and economic reform agenda. From Santiago to London, Oslo, Dublin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Stockholm to Berlin, Progressive Governance has been held as an international summit since 1999.
On changing key topics, decision-makers and thought leaders discuss new ideas, develop strategies and work on alliances for centre-left parties and social movements.

This year’s summit is focused on how to build forward-thinking political coalitions that can lay the foundations to make the 2020s a decade of progress. #PGS21
