Participation Progressive Governance Summit 2022 @ Progressive Zentrum, Haus Ungarn, Berlin, 13 October, 2022


Our planet is radically changing. From an inhabitable climate to threatened democracies, progressives must continue to win political majorities capable of swift and bold action.
This year our focus is on how progressive alliances can pull us out of our current crises and into a just and green political era.

From successful campaigns and coalitions, to narratives that win over hearts and minds, and policies that deliver on the promise of progress, the PGS is a space where progressive leaders work on building capacities to govern.
We organize the PGS, because our democracies cannot be taken for granted. We know that everything from fundamental human rights to a habitable planet depends on building progressive majorities, winning elections, and implementing successful policies. PGS brings together green, left, liberal, social democratic political actors in order to show solidarity and build alliances for a more equitable and green political era.

We also know that such a new era of politics cannot come soon enough. Looking back at the 2010s, we see a decade of existential threats to democratic institutions and norms across Europe and North America. Encouraging elections were won in the United States, Spain, Germany, Portugal – yet the turn of the decade also brought the pandemic, inadequate action against the climate crisis, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – challenging recent progressive electoral success. As we emerge from these crises, it is up to us to define a decade of progress – because while change is inevitable, progress is not.
