The Progressive Caucus meets civil society and also discusses a sustainable EU budget

On 10 April the Progressive Caucus -which represents MEPs from the Social Democrats, the Greens and the Left in the European Parliament-, met again civil society representatives and discussed social, environmental, economic and governance issues with a view to a social transformation of Europe.

Under the name “Progressive Caucus Discusses with Civil Society: A New Scenario for Europe”, the event focused on summarizing those convergence points between the “Missing Scenario” -which had been elaborated by the Progressive Caucus’s Steering Committee, and since has been the subject of dialogue in a series of events- and the “Sixth Scenario: A Sustainable Europe for its Citizens”. The latter was prepared by the NGOs represented at the event -more than 250- and was presented at a previous Progressive Caucus’s event in December  2017.

One topic of the event was the sustainability reform of the future EU budget as proposed by the People’s Budget campaign, and how it can contribute to the sustainable development of Europe and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
