Environmental, social and economic challenges are closely interlinked and can no longer be discussed in isolation. On the initiative of 20 MEPs from five political groups, and with the support of more than 60 partner organisations, the Beyond Growth Conference took place from 15 to 17 May 2023 in the EU Parliament in Brussels. In 20 focus panels and 7 plenary discussions, the conventional understanding of growth and economic success was to be questioned and social goals were to be redefined together with approximately 4000 participants. One thing is clear: social well-being and sustainable economic development require respect for planetary boundaries.
