Making social policies fit for the future

Friday, November 17, 2023
Parallel Session 1
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM


Are you ready to dive into the heart of Europe's future?  

The European Pillar of Social Rights is not just a concept: it's a lifeline in today's tumultuous socio-economic landscape. With households grappling to make ends meet and a cost-of-living crisis on our doorstep, it's time to rise to the challenge. The EU is facing a whirlwind of structural challenges - demographic shifts, the green and digital revolution, skills shortages, unconventional work patterns, and the enduring spectre of poverty and inequality.

The big question is: What does all of this mean for the future of the EU's social agenda by 2030 and beyond?

Join us as we ignite a critical discussion on what is needed to further implement the European Pillar of Social Rights and reshape EU employment and social policies for a brighter tomorrow. We'll dissect the impact of the Pillar, discuss implementation gaps, and chart a course for action. We'll also delve into the alchemy of making social protection systems futureproof amidst these monumental shifts, especially the green and digital transitions.
