Beyond Growth

Pathways towards Sustainable Prosperity in the EU

The Beyond Growth 2023 Conference is a multi-stakeholder event aiming to discuss and co-create policies for sustainable prosperity in Europe, based on a systemic and transformative approach to economic, social and environmental sustainability and its encompassing governance framework.

The conference will address the following guiding questions:

  1. What narrative is needed to guide progress towards a European Union that aims to prosper, rather than to grow?
  2. What policies and indicators are needed to build a society that focuses on satisfying the well-being of its citizens while respecting planetary boundaries?
  3. What governance structures are needed to deal with today’s interlinked environmental, social and economic challenges and ensure that all policy areas contribute to the EU’s common objectives?
  4. How to address inconsistencies between existing EU policies and a European post-growth economy agenda, and how to realign priorities accordingly?


The Beyond Growth 2023 conference is an initiative of 20 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from five different political groups and non-attached, with the support of the President of the European Parliament, Roberta METSOLA. They are supported by about 50 partner organisations.
