The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

Going online offers enormous opportunities. That is certainly the case for Belgium. In 2017, 65% of all internet users in Belgium shopped online, but only 23% of SMEs offered their goods or services online. 80% of Belgian internet users were active on social media at the time, but only 22% of companies were present on social media.  There was a lot of room for growth for Belgian companies, which is why Google Digital Atelier was created in 2018. We want to help realize this growth through digital skills training: 27 different workshops and personal coaching sessions - in three languages, free and accessible to everyone. The focus is mainly on digital marketing but you can also find other topics in the curriculum. Job seekers, students or starters - working in a small company or a large established firm - or just interested in all things digital? You are welcome!

What policies are necessary to make it a reality? How does the idea of a ‘wellbeing economy’ fit with the concept of ‘degrowth’? What could be the role of ‘care’ in a degrowth society? What are the opportunities for workers and the role of trade unions in a ‘wellbeing economy’, particularly one that provides for universal basic services and puts care at the centre?

Panel 1: Towards a post-growth energy path
12 Dec 2022
ETUI
This panel explores the role that energy might play to overcome the existing growth model and the multiple crises attached to it, including the current energy crisis. The conversation will focus on how to shift from the illusion of “infinite growth on a finite planet”, to the idea that natural resources and energy must serve societal purposes. The speakers will reflect on the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition towards carbon neutrality, debating optimal strategies and policies that institutions and social movements, including the trade unions, might deploy to address the distributional conflicts of fossil fuel phase-out, including energy-driven inflation and energy poverty induced by rising energy prices; the occupational implications of decarbonization policies; and the social conflicts arising from unequal impacts of energy policies on different groups and territories.

Panel 2: Productivity growth, work and wages
12 Dec 2022
ETUI
The connection between wages and productivity has become a largely unquestioned element of contemporary debates about the economy. Growth frames industrial relations. From calls for higher wages following economic growth, to calls for wage repression to sustain it, the cycle of growth, productivity and wages seems to run in an unbreakable loop. How can we then think of wages without growth? This is a critical question regarding not only the intellectual and political foundations of a post-growth society, but also the possibility of a just transition towards one. This panel gathers a group of experts and practitioners that will tackle this problem from complementary angles. How can the legal frameworks of our industrial relations live without growth? How can we think about the economy without this imperative? How would a post-growth society look like? How can the labour movement adapt wage bargaining strategies to these new realities?

social Plenary B: Post-growth economics: what role for trade unions?
Plenary B: Post-growth economics: what role for trade unions?
15 Dec 2022
ETUI
What does a radical shift to a ‘managed’ post-growth society mean for the trade union movement and for progressive politics? Historically, trade unions and leftist parties were able to use the fruits from the Western economic growth model to build strong welfare states, push for social protection, more income equality and better living and working standards. But the climate emergency and the growing recognition that there are social-ecological limits to economic growth have made it necessary to redefine progressive politics and trade unionism. Are progressive movements embracing this need for a post-growth or degrowth economy? Despite important academic work on the ‘wellbeing’ society or the ‘doughnut economy’, the idea that developed economies will be facing slow economic growth seems to still be a huge challenge for progressive politics. Confronted with the energy and ‘cost of living’ crisis of 2022, in some countries, progressives have even reverted to the old mantra of ‘growth, growth, growth’ (e.g., UK’s Labour). What does the post-growth, net-zero economy mean for the workers’ movement? Is in these ‘hard times’ the ‘end of the month’ not more important than the ‘end of the planet’? Is the security and sustainability of workers’ jobs and salaries not more of a priority than the ‘green transition’? Is ‘Just’ not more needed than ‘Transition’? Facing these questions will be a challenge for all progressive actors. How can the ‘degrowth’ movement and post-growth thinkers engage with trade unions? Can we create a narrative around which these various movements could unite, and reimagine the role and functioning of trade unions in a radically transformed economic system that does not depend on growth?

Panel 5: Working time reduction
15 Dec 2022
ETUI
How much time people spend on wage labour is a decisive factor shaping the economy and its ecological footprint as well as people’s daily lives. Working Time Reductions (WTR) are regarded as an essential policy element of a post-growth society and necessary to achieve a truly just transition. It refers to a collectively agreed reduction of time spent in formal employment and can be implemented in multiple ways (such as shorter working weeks, increased number of paid holidays or early retirement) and at various levels (such as the national, sectoral and company-wide levels). What are the social and environmental benefits? Why is it so essential for an economic transition and what could it look like in practice? These are all questions we would like to discuss during this panel. Chair: Agnieszka Piasna, ETUI Speakers: Katharina Wiese, EEB Mehtap Akgüç, ETUI Pierre Larrouturou, S&D Group in the EP

Launch of HesaMag#26 "If people are unhappy at work it’s because they’ve got problems in their personal lives." This is just one of the deep-rooted misconceptions used as an excuse not to take action against psychosocial risks. And yet these risks, which have numerous consequences for workers’ physical and mental health, are everywhere in our workplaces today: social isolation, overwork, unfairness, lack of autonomy, job insecurity... The list goes on. And take action against them we must.

Have member states integrated a ‘socio-ecological dimension’ in their Recovery and Resilience Plans? What are the next steps in making the Pillar of Social Rights a reality? And what are both the advances and setbacks in European integration, following the outbreak of the war in Ukraine? The event – at the ETUI premises and online – will be an opportunity for an exchange of views between researchers, national and European stakeholders and policymakers on recent developments, challenges and opportunities for Social Europe.

Panel 6: Building alliances for a future beyond growth
12 Dec 2022
ETUI
The shift to a post-growth/wellbeing economy will require the cooperation and active involvement of workers and trade unions as well as the involvement of a wide range of social actors and social movements. There is now more and more recognition within the environmental movement that environmental/climate policy must go hand-in-hand with social measures, and that the transition must be a ‘just’ one. In order to achieve this it is crucial to join the efforts and build strong alliances. But wat are some of the key alliances between different social movements that are necessary to this end? What kinds of alliances are already emerging (from the local to the global level), and what are some of the main challenges? How do we convince workers/unions that alliances with other movements – some with which they may have had difficult relationships in the past – could contribute to a better future for them? Where do we see new alliances emerging as a result of this – in particular with trade unions – and where do we see remaining tensions/conflict?
