Public hearing on the 2023 Strategic foresight report

The EESC organised a public hearing in the process of drafting its opinion (INT/1039) on the Commission's 2023 Strategic Foresight Report (SFR) focusing on 'Sustainability and people's wellbeing at the hearth of Europe's Open Strategic Autonomy".

The hearing consisted of two panels, each concluded by a discussion amongst the speakers and attendants. The overarching goal of the hearing was to see how to integrate strategic foresight in the EU policy-making providing a long-term view and a cross-cutting approach reconciling the digital transitions with the economic and social dimensions. The first of the two panels specifically discussed how to enhance sustainability and wellbeing to reinforce EU open strategic autonomy whilst the second gathered stakeholders' views on the priorities that the EU should set in its new Strategic Agenda to answer the challenges and grasp the opportunities that lies ahead of us.

Recording of the event is available.
