In this invitation-only event, different approaches to social and labour market policies across Europe will be explored and contrasted to map best practices across Europe.

Event background

We are living in an era of rapid socio-economic restructuring: economic globalisation, trade liberalisation, skill-biased technological innovation and digitalisation, changes of family structures and gender roles, the rise of the service economy, population ageing, fiscal austerity and economic crisis management, imbalanced growth, increased poverty, inequality, and increasing international mobility.

These changes all affect the lives of citizens and the nature of their work. A growing number of people feel left behind due to the increasing inequalities and labour market polarisation.

Within the European Green movement, various perspectives on how (economic) security, social inclusion and meaningful participation of everyone in society can be fostered. These views are influenced by the importance that work is given as an integrating factor in society as well as in national contexts and political realities.

About the event

The Green European Foundation is opening a space for dialogue to exchange on the experiences with different labour market policies across Europe and to map the different policy tools and perspectives on work within the Green movement. The participants, ranging from representatives of Green organisations and parties from all over Europe to academics, trade unions and members of the European Green actors will share and debate different policy models from active labour market policies (ALMPs) to universal basic income (UBI) models or pilot projects, as well as the idea of an ecological transition income.
