What is the conference about?

The Beyond Growth 2023 Conference aims to come out with policy proposals and create a shift in how our society can move beyond the approach of national GDP growth being a measure of success. This will require an overhaul in the EU and national levels in our approach to economics, social and environmental policy and governance.

To discuss these issues, the conference will include the heads of the European Commission, Council and Parliament, high-level academics and experts, policy-makers from across the EU institutions, representatives of civil society organisations, social partners and citizens. The Beyond Growth 2023 is an initiative of 20 MEPs from five different political groups and supported by over 50 partner organisations.
