Young local leaders: join the PES Group seminar!

The PES Group is happy to invite young regionally or locally elected politicians to take part in the seminar “Workers’ empowerment in the green transition”, organised in cooperation with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in Florence (Italy) on 19-20 March 2020. This is a great opportunity to have the chance to share your experiences, meet other local politicians from across the European Union and get involved in our growing platform of progressive cities and regions from across the EU.

To take part in this event, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a democratic mandate as an elected politician at regional or local level in a Member State of the European Union
  • Be a member of a progressive, socialist, social-democratic political party
  • Be no more than 40 years old on the day of the event

The PES Group will cover travel and accomodation costs for the selected candidates. They will be selected with an eye to ensuring balance in terms of gender, regional and local representation, political affiliation and nationality. Candidates will be informed of the selection results in mid February.

Applications for this event are now closed. For more information, don't hesitate to contact the PES Group secretariat at
