In conversation: Leading social Europe

Creating a socially just world for all is at the heart of our political mission. As we join forces to advance the green and digital transition, social issues need to remain a priority. In this panel, speakers discuss our path towards a Social Europe. Topics include the impact of new technology on the labour market, our response to inflation and the cost-of-living crisis, the role of collective bargaining, as well as innovative new approaches to fight long-term unemployment.
