AEIP reply to the call for evidence on the 2023 Strategic Foresight Report
Last week AEIP submitted its feedback to the Commission’s call for evidence on 2023 Strategic Foresight Report. The 2023 Strategic Foresight Report focuses on the future of the EU’s social and economic sustainability.
AEIP welcomes the European Commission’s call for evidence on the 2023 Strategic Foresight Report which aims to help the European Union to be prepared for climate and environmental challenges while also strengthening its efforts to increase the wellbeing, prosperity and security of its current and future population.
AEIP recognizes that climate change as well as the deterioration of our natural environment and biodiversity represents a huge challenge for the standard of living for the generations to come. In that respect, the maintenance of such an important common good, which is the environmental stability of the planet, is intrinsically linked with another important common good, which is the collective wellbeing of society.
In its contribution AEIP suggests that in the process to achieve economic and social sustainability in the Union it is fundamental to adopt a holistic approach to reflect on several interrelated issues such as social and employment policies and ecologically-sustainable demographic trends. These are relevant aspects to deliver an inclusive policy response to Europe`s demographic and ageing challenges.
Also, as a promoter of social protection managed by social partners, AEIP has stressed the importance of the paritarian model and the full integration of its underlying principles such as solidarity, risk sharing, efficiency, good governance and transparency of costs.
