Europe is in the grip of several crises - social, environmental and political. They are the result of the prevailing economic system and the inequalities it produces all over the continent. In the absence of profound changes these crises will lead to further destabilization of societies and more authoritarian, populist and extremist rule. The result could be even the collapse of democratic rule in many parts of the continent, affecting all neighbouring countries.
The panel, a group of politicians, activists and academics, will discuss these current challenges and how the Sustainable Equality report, along with other crucial work being done across Europe can achieve a society of economic, social and ecological balance and well-being for everyone.
