Description of the event:
On June 29 and 30, the second meeting of the “Progressive Governance” seminars will be held in the city of Lisbon; each of these conferences aims to address a topic relevant to the construction of an economic policy that can combine credibility with popular consensus. The event is organized by the Portuguese Partido Socialisda and the Think Tank Policy Network, Global Progress and Fundação Res Publica.
The first part of the event will be a dinner-debate in which several participants, from different European countries, will give their contribution to the current situation of the European Union. The following day there will be a round table during which the priorities of social democracy in Europe will be debated, highlighting the public policies needed for progressive alternatives.
The topics addressed by this seminar will be responsible public spending, social policies and medium and long-term investments to be implemented in contexts of economic stagnation.
Action Institute will participate with an intervention of its president and co-founder Carlotta De Franceschi, who will give a speech about the importance of local public investments and the interaction between private and public investments, bringing also examples of investments implemented by the Italian Government in the last decade.
