02: A New Economic and Competition Model for Europe

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Europe is faced with major challenges – social, economic and ecological crises are widely debated. It is said that ambitious aims for social and environmental policies will reduce Europe’s competitiveness and thus result in unemployment. How can the social and ecological transformation of our economic and social systems succeed? Which factors will determine the success of a sustainable European economy? Who are the winners and the losers of this paradigm shift?
