Rising cost of living, the unfolding climate crisis and international armed conflicts are contributing to an age of insecurity felt by many. For progressives, the main challenge is to achieve a better and fairer society in these politically testing times.

Leading international politicians, thinkers and strategists from both sides of the Atlantic joined together to explore how to make an impactful contribution to shaping a comprehensive concept of progressive security. 

This year’s Progressive Governance Summit explored how to champion change in times of uncertainty and create momentum to turn progressive security into political action.
