Which Europe after the pandemic? Recovering from the Covid-19 with a better EU

An online seminar to discuss the impact and consequences of the pandemic outbreak in Europe. And to steer the path towards a sustainable, inclusive post-Covid EU.

As part of the GROWINPRO public engagement initiatives, and on the occasion of the publication of the EuroMemorandum 2021 Report “A post-Covid 19 global-local agenda for a socio-ecological transformation in Europe”, a webinar was held on Tuesday May 11th, from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm (CET), to discuss the impact and consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on the European Union and its economic and institutional governance.

The debate revolved around three crucial questions: when and how will we get out of the dramatic economic and social crisis caused by the coronavirus contagion? Did the outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis open up any viable room for manoeuvre in the European Union to trigger a process of continental integration capable of tackling the problem of inequalities and economic, productive and territorial imbalances within and between its member States? And what are the policies and institutional choices that should steer this process, also from the point of view of the key challenge of paving the way towards an EU social and environmental sustainability path?

The speakers of the webinar include Andrea Roventini (GROWINPRO principal investigator), Lucrezia Fanti (GROWINPRO external researcher), Mario Pianta (Scuola Normale Superiore, Florence), Marcella Corsi (“Sapienza” University of Rome).

The event is organised by Sbilanciamoci!, a member of the GROWINPRO Civil Society Organisations’ network, and was held in Italian.
