How can public services enterprises contribute to a sustainable European society ?




Panel Discussion

As we have seen during the COVID crisis, public services are essential to enable our societies to function, providing inhabitants with their basic needs: health, education, transport, food….

Consequently, they represent a powerful means of leveraging changes to the way our economies function, including our consumption and production habits.

Indeed, public services enterprises can play an important role in facilitating the major social, economic and ecologic transitions that are needed in our societies. 

This round table will bring together European and local stakeholders, in partnership with the European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing public services (CEEP). They will share concrete examples on how public services enterprises can contribute to these transitions, and learn about the major current trends and challenges around Europe.
