Report published by the European Commission on 6 July 2023, comprising its fourth annual Strategic Foresight Report.
Strategic foresight supports the European Commission on its forward-looking path towards achieving the six headline ambitious presented by its President, Ursula von der Leyen, at the start of her mandate.
This year's report examines the key intersections between the structural trends and dynamics affecting the social and economic aspects of sustainability, to clarify the potential choices and trade-offs that the European Union (EU) is likely to face in the future. Drawing on an inclusive foresight exercise and building on the previous editions, it explores key challenges that will determine the transformation of our society and economy towards a model that respects planetary boundaries, and safeguards global competitiveness, strong social foundations, and resilience. It also investigates how pursuing inclusive wellbeing over the long-term, engaging in a pathway towards sustainability, and consolidating democracy can be the recipe for Europe to strengthen its global role.
On this basis, the report proposes ten areas for action to achieve the objectives of a socially and economically sustainable EU with a stronger role in the world in the coming years.
