FEPS, in collaboration with Transform! Europe and Green European Foundation, organised two workshops on the occasion of the 7th edition of the European Forum that took place in Madrid this year from 10 to 12 November. More information can be found on the conference website.
Workshop 1: The role of the state – 11 November 9:30-11:30
Forging a socio-ecological welfare state defined by wellbeing within planetary boundaries could be the chance to face the polycrisis. Indeed, our welfare states should ensure universal access to high-quality essential services such as clean, affordable and energy-efficient housing and mobility, as well as strengthened social protection systems that mitigate the devastating consequences of climate change and environmental degradation. A new socio-ecological state would have a responsibility in enabling policy frameworks so citizens everywhere can take into their stride the new challenges brought about by digital breakthroughs and the climate crisis. By implementing social policies that tackle socio-economic inequalities, reduce our carbon emissions and limit our environmental impact, socio-ecological welfare states stand the chance to improve people’s quality of life and strengthen their resilience to shocks.
Workshop 2: Energy and climate change – 11 November 12:00-14:00
In the current context marked by a severe energy price hike and the cost-of-living crisis, socioeconomic and environmental considerations have gained growing momentum. At the heart of this lies the need to avoid energy poverty and protect the vulnerable. An answer to this issue could be the implementation of Energy Minimum Rights to ensure citizens, regardless of their status in society, have access to sustainable energy of quality (in line with the triple AQ(S) standard of international human rights). So far REPowerEU has focused more on behavioural change (also supported by the EU ‘Save Energy communication’) and not necessarily deep structural transformation when actually this is where the real impact of REPowerEU could lie. This crisis comes with a disruptive potential for the European political and economic status quo, and there is potential to introduce improved distribution of energy supplies in order to meet the basic needs of citizens. This would also intersect with the capacity to boost the development of energy communities that ensure decentralised energy security. This workshop aimed to explore the political and social potential of distributive measures in energy policy.
