Trade4SD is a 4-year project devoted to research on a topic which is high on the domestic as well as multilateral, EU and bilateral trade policy agenda. The ambition of the project is to explore and foster the positive linkages between trade and sustainable development, to provide policy recommendations for the creation of new opportunities for agents involved in the global, regional and national agri-food value chains, and to define conditions for sustainable livelihoods of farm producers in the EU and developing partner countries. Trade is a central factor in shaping global, regional and local development. Increased trade, empowered by the growth of Global Value Chains (GVCs), has boosted productivity and incomes in many ;Trade can also contribute to food security, improved nutrition through diversification of food baskets and give poor farmers access to high value markets. However, if not fairly regulated, trade might generate increases in inequality and negative impacts on working conditions in developing countries, and compromise the environment. According to the recent World Bank Report (2020a), beyond policies to facilitate participation in Global Value Chains directly, complementary policies, such as labour regulations and environmental protection measures, are needed to share their benefits and attenuate any costs. Trade policy has an important part to play in achieving the SDGs.

The Centre Condorcet is a think tank which aims to stimulate Enlightenment core values of reason and humanism, inspired by one of its most innovative thinkers, Nicolas de Condorcet. The principal common project in Europe today, the European Union, may be in need of deep conceptual and operational innovation. The mantra that there are no alternative trajectories for managing common interests cannot be taken at face ; Many leading political and social scientists and economists have remarked that its dominant political and economic paradigms jeopardize the necessary social compromises in its societies. The fundamental consensus forged in the 1950s is fragmenting, a new one does not seem in the ; Indicative are the deepening inequalities within countries and between them, threats to the essence of democracy and civic rights, uncontrolled technological advances, neo-nationalism and eurocentrism, and alienation of large groups of citizens. At the end of the 18th century, Europe too was faced with deep social and economic shifts while political stagnation prevented adaptation. Then like now they are systemic problems which demand critical thinking, creativity and serendipity, and courage, as shown by ;      The Centre Condorcet has a double purpose: It will seek more attention for those thinkers who raise questions which may require the dominant paradigms to be re-evaluated. The Polish poet and diplomat Czeslaw Milosz analysed in the 1950s how European intellectuals became captive to system thinking and admiration of communism; others voiced similar concerns. It serves as a general warning about all –isms, to keep an open and critical, evidence-based mind. Why should centralising Europeanism and globalism, with their benefits, but equally with collateral effects, be an exception? The voices of contemporary intellectuals should be heard and enrich current debates about future social and economic arrangements in Europe.        It will serve as the platform for the independent tripartite High Level Groups for Policy Innovation. One such approach of re-evaluation started when the first group was launched by the EU’s Council Presidency in December 2011. Since then, they have developed into an original model for brainstorming about paradigm shifts in public policy. Their use of the Socratic method and the mutual belief of its participants in a European Common Good stimulate creativity and serendipity. Their independence allows them to engineer truly new ideas, free of formal and legal constraints, and to produce reports which can inspire a new generation of policies to deal more effectively with disruptive challenges that the countries and their Union are facing. Since the beginning, they have been served voluntarily by EPPA; ten years later, their expansion has led to setting-up a new home in the Centre ;

This new episode of the Stories from the regions takes us to Belgium where the non-profit organisation Zinneke, with the help of Brussels Capital Region and the European Regional Development Fund provided by European Union, has acquired and is in the process of renovating the building at 13 Place Masui in Schaerbeek in Brussels’ north district. The aim was to find a permanent anchor point for the organisation, which has been responsible for organising the Zinneke Parade every two years since 2000. This production centre is a huge laboratory where Zinneke is now able to further develop its socio-artistic initiatives as a venue for sharing spaces, tools, equipment, knowledge and skills. While the renovation works on the building at Place Masui are to be completed by 2024, Zinneke also offers long-term metal training and gives home to a resource centre that recycles industrial waste. By stirring up public space in the city and being a place of encounters inside and outside of its premises, Zinneke intends to meet social and cultural challenges artistically and collectively. https://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/en/projects/Belgium/un-lieu-dancrage-pour-lassociation-socio-artistique-zinneke-a-bruxelles and https://www.zinneke.org/ For more information on EU regional policy, please visit our website: https://europa.eu/!Yy67HF Follow us on: - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EUinmyregion - Twitter: https://twitter.com/euinmyregion - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/euinmyregion/

Expert Conference: Charting a path towards climate neutrality in turbulent times | 30 Nov - Brussels
16 Dec 2022
Ecologic Institute
This event discussed how long-term policy direction can be maintained despite uncertainties, and in this context it zoomed into the role of long-term strategies and scientific climate advisory councils. Background: The EU’s toolbox on climate action has been significantly expanded since the adoption of the Paris Agreement: targets have been increased and the climate neutrality goal is legally binding. New planning processes have been started and new institutions created. And with FitFor55 the core policies are being updated. Many Member States have enacted their own framework climate laws to establish clear procedures for managing their own policy-making and established dedicated independent scientific advisory councils. At EU level, a new European Scientific Advisory Board has been formed to provide additional and independent input to the institutions on the green transition. However, first the economic impacts of the pandemic and now the energy crisis triggered by both the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a particularly hot summer in Europe are creating a difficult environment, with a complex mixture of supportive and blocking impulses. Does the EU have the means to stay the course towards climate neutrality in such turbulent times?

Renewables Grid Init...
On 19 October, the Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI), WindEurope and the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) co-organised an event discussing challenges and possible solutions to accelerate offshore energy infrastructure deployment while also restoring Europe’s marine ecosystems. The combined crises of climate change, biodiversity, and energy security require an acceleration of renewable energy and electricity grid deployment, with the offshore wind playing an increasingly relevant contribution in reaching renewable energy targets. However, the degraded state of our marine ecosystems requires due consideration: offshore wind energy projects and connecting grid infrastructure, when properly planned and deployed, can and should instrumentally contribute to the restoration of our seas and become nature positive. With this in mind, the conference kick-started discussions on reconciling potential conflicts between nature and energy infrastructure. Emphasis was placed on reducing the risk of delays, utilisation of careful and comprehensive planning and identifying solutions which need to be deployed at scale by permitting authorities and project developers alike as part of the timely achievement of EU’s renewable energy and nature restoration goals. Participants and speakers discussed joint solutions for implementing, financing and disseminating practices on nature-positive offshore energy and grid infrastructure throughout the day.

On 19 October, the Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI), WindEurope and the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) co-organised an event discussing challenges and possible solutions to accelerate offshore energy infrastructure deployment while also restoring Europe’s marine ecosystems. The combined crises of climate change, biodiversity, and energy security require an acceleration of renewable energy and electricity grid deployment, with the offshore wind playing an increasingly relevant contribution in reaching renewable energy targets. However, the degraded state of our marine ecosystems requires due consideration: offshore wind energy projects and connecting grid infrastructure, when properly planned and deployed, can and should instrumentally contribute to the restoration of our seas and become nature positive. With this in mind, the conference kick-started discussions on reconciling potential conflicts between nature and energy infrastructure. Emphasis was placed on reducing the risk of delays, utilisation of careful and comprehensive planning and identifying solutions which need to be deployed at scale by permitting authorities and project developers alike as part of the timely achievement of EU’s renewable energy and nature restoration goals. Participants and speakers discussed joint solutions for implementing, financing and disseminating practices on nature-positive offshore energy and grid infrastructure throughout the day.

Europe’s turbines are ageing – 78 GW will be at least 20 years old by 2030. We need to hold onto as much capacity as we can. So what do we do with all these old turbines? There are many possible outcomes. We can decommission them, we can give them a lifetime extension, or ideally we can repower them with newer, better turbines. But what are the right frameworks for all these? How do we make it as circular and sustainable as possible? And how can we make sure communities and businesses will benefit? Find out the answers to these questions at WindEurope's Annual End-of-Life Issues and Strategies Seminar in Ghent, Belgium. Visit: https://windeurope.org/eolis2022/

End the cost of living crisis: #TaxProfitsRaisePay Nancy Seutin, cleaning worker from Belgium “I’m Nancy, I’m 38 years old, I have an eight-year-old son. I’ve worked in services for 11 years now and have been a trade union member for 10 years. “My everyday life, in addition to those of 150,000 colleagues in Belgium, is the following: cleaning for three or four hours in a home and then going somewhere else to another home without having lunch often and you have to adapt to the cleaning materials you’re given and that goes on every day of the week, when health permits. “It's a difficult, useful, crucial job. We were vital during Covid for elderly people who can’t care for themselves or their homes on a daily basis. For all of this work we get about 1000 Euros a month. 1000 Euros is hardly anything. “You have to choose the bills you have to pay. Obviously, accommodation has to come first, or you would be chucked on the streets. But then you have heating and whether to put petrol in the car to go to work. Many colleagues have said they are choosing not to heat their homes this winter. “With regard to food, again things are very difficult. Basic food stuffs are practically unaffordable, so you have to choose. It might be a little luxury item but that’s increasingly rare so we just have to manage with what we can. We can’t pay everything. “Companies that invoice their clients have huge profits and don’t care at all about our welfare and that’s something we need to speak out about. It’s important that we act because we just can’t live on a thousand euros a month.”

Freedom Dialogue
Empowering women’s political participation is an urgent issue not only in Jordan and Lebanon but also worldwide and in the European Union. The under-representation of women raises a serious democratic deficit and undermines the values of liberalism, namely the support of individual rights. As a response, liberal feminism arose already in the 19th century, mainly focusing on women’s suffrage and access to education. Despite the many advocacy organisations, activist groups and political movements fighting for women’s rights and empowerment, women’s political under-representation is still a problem. On the 28th-30th of September 2022, a group of female politicians and activists from Lebanon and Jordan came to Brussels to exchange views on women in politics.
