Fit for the Future. Report

In April 2024, the Minister-President of the Government of Flanders organised a gathering of government leaders of strong and innovative European regions to discuss global challenges and regional solutions during the Belgian EU presidency, from 1 January to 30 June 2024. The Leaders Meeting: “Fit for the Future: Global Challenges, Regional Solutions” took place on Thursday 18 April 2024 in Antwerp. In the lead-up to the Leaders Meeting, the participating regions joined forces and intelligence to carry out a strategic foresight analysis at administrative level. During this exploratory process, the participating regions exchanged their approaches to strategic foresight analysis, reflected together on possible future scenarios and identified common global challenges and potential regional solutions. This report presents the results of the exploratory process and has supported the exchange of views among the government leaders during the Leaders Meeting. The first section of the report provides a brief overview of the statistics on the European regions concerned. The second part explores the methodology used in the strategic foresight exercise. The third section describes five key areas of action based on this exercise. It explores the key challenges and identifies possible solutions both on an interregional and European level to increase the EU’s resilience.
