Luís Teles Morais and Sabrina Schulz question the importance given to economic growth in the EU. They call for a change of perspective and for a new focus on sustainable well-being as a broad societal goal. In this article previously published by the Portugues newspaper Público, they also present the main results of the DIALOGUE ON EUROPE Thinking Lab on Sustainable Growth.
The Thinking Lab on Sustainable Growth aims to provide guidance on the challenge of shaping economic growth in Europe in a more ecologic, inclusive and social way. The issue of Sustainability is not limited to the field of ecology, but has to be tackled within a cross-sectoral approach, incorporating topics such as energy policy, innovation and start-up policy, digitalisation, social security and national debt policy.
