25 participants from CEE countries created a strategic foresight plan to navigate future challenges and opportunities. They used a risk matrix to evaluate current trends and formed smaller groups to brainstorm potential scenarios. They developed actionable policy recommendations for the EU strategic agenda between 2024 and 2029. The outcome was a plan that provides insights and concrete actions for long-term development. This was a significant step towards a prosperous future for the CEE region, leaving participants with a sense of achievement and hope.
This workshop gathered policy experts, civil society and business leaders primarily from Central and Eastern Europe, to provide CEE perspectives on upcoming EU strategic plans and emphasise democratic security. The meeting was the first step in developing, analysing, and backcasting alternative futures for EU policies. Participants evaluated the drivers and triggers shaping the region’s future, debating the “most impactful and uncertain” outliers in three teams and began narrating possible scenarios.
