Progressive Governance Summit 2024

We live in an age of insecurity. For progressives, the main challenge is to achieve a better and fairer society amidst a new reality of military threats and geopolitical tensions. Hard choices lie ahead, but there is a political space to claim for progressives: How can progressives address peoples’ hard-felt anxieties with a holistic security approach ranging from defence to climate, economic and social policies?

With a series of crucial electoral tests ahead, the Progressive Governance Summit 2024 is set to be a landmark event, drawing together leading intellectuals, activists, and political decision-makers. Just after the elections of the European Parliament, the international progressive community will gather once more in Berlin on 21-22 June 2024.

Together with our more than 20 international partner organisations, we will debate and strategise on how to make an impactful contribution to shaping a comprehensive concept of progressive security and creating momentum to turn it into political action.
