The Brussels Economic Forum

The future is now: which economy for the next generation?

Award-winning young economists and high-level speakers from across the world got together at the Brussels Economic Forum on 17 May to discuss how we can build a fair, green and digital economy for the future.

The Brussels Economic Forum (BEF) is the flagship annual economic event of the European Commission. For over 20 years, it has gathered high-level European and international policymakers, academics, civil society and business leaders to identify key challenges and debate policy priorities for the European economy.

To mark the European Year of Youth 2022, the Brussels Economic Forum 2022 shone a spotlight on youth. In a time of crisis marked in particular by the invasion of Ukraine, the Forum discussed how to ensure that the European economy is future-proof by accelerating the green transition without leaving anyone behind.
