With Courage. For Europe.

Hosted with the support from the governing German SPD, the PES Congress welcomed Heads of state and government, European Commissioners, party leaders and other representatives.

Europe is about a year and a half away from the next European election. The Congress comes at a moment of fundamental changes and high uncertainties. With the motto “With Courage. For Europe”, PES leaders will discuss policies to address deep shifts in international security and multilateral balance, soaring energy prices and inflation, the covid crisis, climate change and social challenges.

During the Congress, FEPS hosted the fringe event ‘The future of the European project: enlargement VS deepening?’. Speakers include Radmila Šekerinska, Former Minister of Defense of North Macedonia; Andreas Schieder, MEP and Chair of the Global Progressive Forum; MEP Domènec Rui Devesa; former MEPs Mercedes Bresso; MEP Jo Leinen; and FEPS President Maria Joåo Rodrigues.
