A stronger economy, social justice and jobs
#TheFutureIsYours An economy that works for you
Over 70% of the EU budget’s revenues come from the member states based on their Gross National Income (GNI), i.e. all the money earned by each country’s residents and companies annually. This means that the EU funds are largely dependent on the changing economic situation and the political will of each member state. Every 7 years, the member states decide on the EU’s long-term budget, often prioritising their narrowly-defined interests over the common good of all Europeans, including the possibility to block the adoption of the budget entirely by a single national government.
The EU should become a Fiscal Union with an independent budget large enough to fund its own policies. This should be based on the Union’s capacity to collect taxes and issue debt. Such a solution will strengthen the resilience of the EU to economic crises and let it provide public goods to all Europeans, while respecting the principle of subsidiarity, i.e. ensuring the EU acts only in the areas where it has more added value than national or local governments. The introduction of new EU taxes should be based on a co-decision of the European Parliament and the Council, with no right to block it by a single member state.
The currently discussed EU taxes as part of the post-pandemic recovery plan on plastic, carbon, financial transactions, and activities of digital companies should be swiftly adopted, maintained as permanent instruments and complemented with new own resources in the future.

Civil society organisations break down social entrepreneurship — or social innovation to solve social problems
28 January 2022
10:00 - 13:00
The unemployment of disadvantaged groups (disabled people, young people, psychiatric patients), the depopulation of rural areas and the “brain drain” currently pose significant challenges for both Hungary and the European Union. Many civil society organisations are working to solve these problems, but without financial resources the organisation cannot really develop or solve the problem in the long term. Social enterprises can provide job opportunities and address these challenges at the same time. The main objective of the conference is to launch a local, joint reflection in order to enable civil society organisations to start up social enterprises in order to make better use of local natural and human resources and to promote the economic development of rural areas. It also aims to provide practical knowledge and information to participants on how to start a social enterprise. Good practices will also be presented during the conference.
