Progressive Governance Digital summit 2021

Digital summit, 9-11 June 2021

This year’s Progressive Governance Digital Summit brought the progressive community together with a purpose: As the political discourse shifts from crisis management to the transition of societies and systems post-pandemic, progressives must lead a new political era defined by courage and action.

Governing progressives must implement bold policies that address social and economic inequalities that the pandemic has only exacerbated. These policies should set the tone for a decade of progress: our planet and democracies are at stake.

As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, governing administrations and new political leaders must be ready to take swift steps towards an equitable and sustainable world. In preparation, this year’s summit is exploring political coalitions, new economic paradigms, and paths towards multilateralism that will help usher in a decade defined by progress.

From Santiago to London, Oslo, Dublin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Stockholm to Berlin – Progressive Governance conferences and summits have been held worldwide since 1999. Since its inception, the conference has gathered leading as well as up-and-coming academics, activists and political decision-makers from around the globe. While each Progressive Governance edition has had a different main focus, the underlying goal remains the same: to debate and discuss the current state of centre-left parties and movements as well as common paths forward. The Progressive Governance series brings cutting-edge intellectual thinking and impactful political actors together for a renewal of the progressive governing philosophy and political agenda across the world.

This event was co-organised by Das Progressive Zentrum and a network of over 25 partners from across Europe and North America. Together with over 75 top political actors, public intellectuals, and social innovators we will analyse and debate this year's main themes: Democracy, Europe+, Leadership, and Transformation.
