DPP hosts the European Public Policy Conference 2023

European Public Policy Conference 2023

In 2023, DPP hosts the European Public Policy Conference (EPPC). The EPPC conference is organised every year by students from the Hertie School of Governance. In 2008, the EPPC was founded to address the most challenging issues of today and possible disputes that may emerge tomorrow. The conference empowers students and future policy leaders to take charge of and direct their own holistic experience by addressing the public policy issues that they consider to be the most relevant at the time.

This year, the conference is titled Europe in the Face of Crisis since we are currently living in a time of multiple, overlapping crises: the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the war of Russian aggression in Ukraine, the subsequent energy and food security crises, and of course the cascading effects of continued and accelerating global heating and climate change. This has led some analysts to term our current era the “Age of Permacrisis”. 

The event is sponsored by the IPLI Foundation and the speakers are form all over the EU. The keynote speakers bring unique insights and alternative perspectives to the discourse on topics such as sustainability and climate action, boosting risilience, and pressing challenges as a result of current events. Participants have the opportunity to engage with prominent leaders and experts to discuss pressing challenges regarding the circular economy and the workshops are an excellent opportunity for participants to combine theoretical insights gained through the keynotes and panels with practical applications.
