High-level panel discussion: Finding common ground for a sustainable Europe

The closing panel will bring together diverse stakeholders to connect the dots: how do progressive business and the trade unions perceive the economic transition that is necessary to realise our ambitions for a sustainable future? What do young people see as the most pressing issues to address? And most importantly, we will identify common ground to advocate for a more sustainable Europe and discuss how we can build stronger coalitions between progressive forces from civil society, trade unions and business to achieve our goals.
