“Try turning it off and back on again” – How many times have we recommended this to fix our computers? With the Covid-19 outbreak, our economy was suddenly and dramatically turned off. The virus is taking thousands of lives and jobs, and is forcing us to live in isolation. Now it is time to restart! But what is it we want to fix in our post-corona economy?

On Saturday, September 5th, high level experts, leading academics, progressive politicians and progressives everywhere will come together, physically in Amsterdam and digitally on an exciting platform, to discuss these and other questions in a conference organized by the progressive family represented by Socialists & Democrats, the Party for European Socialists, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the Dutch Labour Party (Partij van de Arbeid).


Joining us on the main stage and in breakout sessions Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, PvdA party leader Lodewijk Asscher, economists Carlota Pérez, Ann Pettifor, Andrés Rodríguez-Pose, Arnoud Boot and Andrea Renda, former Minister Fabrizio Barca, MEPs Paul Tang, Miapetra Kumpula-Natri and Brando Benifei, EC VP Frans Timmermans Head of Cabinet Diederik Samsom, tech-writer Evgeny Morozov, President of the Italian Innovation Fund Francesca Bria,…and many more!

We need a reset! We do not want to go back to the economy that put our planet, public health and income at risk, and that leads to increasing inequalities.

We need a reset! So that we can construct a system where sustainability prevails over resource depletion; where economic opportunities and wealth are distributed across people and regions rather than concentrated in few hands or big urban agglomerations; a system where finance does not mean speculation, but support for the real economy; an economy where data unleashes citizens’ and businesses creativity, instead of undermining their autonomy.

The stakes are clear. If we want to come out of this crisis better than before, if we want to build a fair and sustainable post-corona economy, we need progressive leadership. We do need a reset. And we are ready to take the lead!

You can register for the physical event venue Amsterdome (Amsterdam), or you can attend digitally on the platform ‘Let’s Get Digital’ that lets you experience the conference as if you were standing in the conference hall, and which allows you to meet and mingle with other online participants.

More information to follow. Physical attendance is limited due to Covid-19 protocols and developing situation and therefore not granted automatically.
