The Conference ‘Beyond Growth’ will be a multi-stakeholder event aiming to discuss and co-create policies for sustainable prosperity in Europe, based on a systemic and transformative approach to economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
The event aims to challenge conventional policymaking in the European Union and redefine societal goals across the board, to move away from the harmful focus on sole economic growth – that is, GDP growth – as the basis of our development model.
The conference offers an opportunity to discuss the idea of a post-growth future that combines social well-being and viable economic development concerning planetary boundaries. It will involve stakeholders from the EU and national policymaking, academia, social partners, and civil society organizations.
The event will take place in the European Parliament (Brussels) from 15-17 May 2023 with the possibility of live streaming.
