Scientific Board: Launch of a progressive call for change

Wednesday, 2 April, 2014

Following the Annual Forum meeting in March, the Scientific Board has decided to launch a "progressive call for change" of Europe's policy agenda by early May 2014. This call will argue why Europe has to profoundly change its policies in order to put the crisis behind us and to make the European project once more relevant to ordinary people. The call will make a whole range of concrete proposals on how this can be achieved through short and longer term policy changes. The Board will put major emphasis on the need to forcefully address mounting inequality, which divides our societies and undermines our economic potential. Special attention will be given to the need to ensure a fair future for all children.
