At the Vision Europe Summit, which took place in Turin in November 2017, the leaders of eight European Think Tanks and foundations published this conference declaration. Globalization brought growth and prosperity to many countries but also enhanced inequalities within as well as between countries.

This unequal distribution of the gains of globalization created social, economic and political challenges in many countries. The speed of the change induced by globalization as well as technological progress generates hopes but also fears. There is a need to ensure that economic globalization makes Europe not just more prosperous but that the benefits of this prosperity are shared across society. It is therefore urgent to implement a pro-active agenda at the level of the EU and its member states to make open societies and open economies sustainable.
