When the Corona crisis ends, it is unlikely that our societies will completely return to the „old normality“. What are the windows of opportunities brought to us by this crisis? Authors of the Strategy Paper for the Progressive Governance Digital Summit 2020 introduce us to six possible scenarios for the year 2025.
Revisit the highlights of the Progressive Governance Digital Summit 2020, including remarks by Madeleine Albright, Lodewijk Asscher, Annalena Baerbock, Nadia Calviño, Anneliese Dodds, Anke Hassel, Matthew Goodwin, Joschka Fischer, Heiko Maas, Mariana Mazzucato, Dani Rodrik, Olaf Scholz, Matthew Taylor, Adam Tooze, Catherine E. de Vries.
The online summit will host more than 30 sessions and focus on transformation, democracy, progressive leadership and Europe’s role in a multilateral world. Olaf Scholz, Mariana Mazzucato, Frans Timmermans, Ska Keller, Hubertus Heil, Dani Rodrik, Katja Kipping, Jagmeet Singh and up to 100 other speakers from Europe and North America will participate in the event. It will take place from 15 to 19 June 2020.
How do our hierarchical, solidaristic, and individualistic impulses align to shape how we perceive and live democracy? The intertwining of these three cultural frameworks determine societal structures and have been applied in different constellations throughout history; the era of enlightenment, the post-war period, and the era of neoliberalism, as examples. Moving forward as a society, we need not only a rethinking of those frameworks, but also a bold, reimagined social settlement.
Two of the sessions will be broadcasted via web streaming from 10.30 – 11.15 for the opening remarks discussion and again at 17.30 – 20.15 to see the Progressive Governance Leaders Debate.
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?
Join us for the Leaders Debate and Celebrating Spring Party of the Progressive Governance Symposium 2019. The event takes place on 25 April 2019, starting at 5.30 pm.
