Event Description

The Future is Democracy: Progressive Europe at crossroads - Saturday 11 December from 9.45 to 18.00

The Conference on the Future of Europe is key to unlocking the way for a much needed reform of the European Union, starting from the very need to strengthen the quality and quantity of European democracy. A stronger EU is the solution. The Covid-19 crisis with the consequent Next Generation EU have only increased this awareness.

As progressives, we firmly believe we will be able to shape a stronger Europe, but only if our citizens’ movement drives the future of the EU with a project based on participation and enthusiasm.

Together with civic networks, movements, youth organisations, representatives of the progressive family, and with keynote speakers such as David Sassoli, President of the European Parliament, Enrico Letta, National Secretary of the Italian Democratic Party, Andrea Orlando, Italian Minister of Labour and Social Policies, Paolo Gentiloni, European Commissioner for Economy (remotely),  Helena Dalli, European Commissioner for Equality, Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Social Rights (remotely), Jens Geier, Head of the German delegation to the S&D Group, and many others, we will discuss about democracy, European citizenship, social rights, regional and local levels, youth and institutional reforms: our vision of Europe.

You can follow the debate in Florence and on the S&D’s #Progressives4Europe debating platform.
