In today’s dynamic global landscape, navigating the intersection of sustainability, wellbeing, and strategic autonomy is of paramount importance. The Egmont Foresight Network is delighted to extend an invitation to you for a presentation by Dimitri Lorenzani, Cabinet Member of Maroš Šefcovic, European Commission Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal, Inter-institutional Relations and Foresight. Join us as Mr. Lorenzani unveils the Strategic Foresight Report 2023, a comprehensive analysis on placing sustainability and people’s wellbeing at the heart of Europe’s Open Strategic Autonomy.

The European Union finds itself amidst a transformative journey towards climate neutrality and sustainability. This transition will play a crucial role in bolstering the EU’s Open Strategic Autonomy, enhancing its long-term competitiveness, upholding its social market economy model, and consolidating its global leadership in the new net-zero economy. Successfully navigating this path will require addressing unprecedented challenges and making strategic choices with far-reaching societal and economic implications.

The presentation promises to be an insightful exploration of these challenges and their potential solutions, as well as how the EU’s Open Strategic Autonomy can guide this transformative journey. Discover the key challenges that will define the transformation of our society and economy towards a model that respects planetary boundaries and safeguards global competitiveness, presented by Mr. Lorenzani.

The Egmont Institute warmly invites you to attend the unveiling of this invaluable resource. The event will take place on the premises of the Egmont Institute (Rue des Petits Carmes 24A, 1000 Brussels), embracing a hybrid format from 12:30 to 14:00.
