A post-COVID 19 global-local agenda for a socio-ecological transformation of Europe
26th Annual Conference on Alternative Economic Policy in Europe
This year’s EuroMemo Group conference will take place in an Online-Format due to Covid-19. Relevant access details will be available in due course.
Following up on the theme of last year’s conference on the need for a Green New Deal for Europe, this year’s conference will particularly address the need for a profound socio-ecological transformation of Europe, as perhaps the last chance for a progressive form of European integration. In response to the twin crises of climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, the focus will be on discussing policy proposals on how we can establish a truly transformative agenda that deepens global cooperation on vital issues of humanity like climate change, public health and migration, while at the same time reinforcing local sustainable development in the EU.
