The conference is scheduled to be held on 18 November 2021 in Berlin. The FSC is an open public event bringing together policy makers and experts from authorities and institutions, scientists and researchers, industry experts as well as citizens and the interested public in a critical in-depth full-day discussion format. The conference is accompanied by a research workshop the day before or after.

Failing forward or taking momentum: Covid-19 systemic effects, climate change emergencies and defects of the current crisis management framework
– Investigating the consequences and advancing on appropriate policies


 

The organisers take a foremost policy-oriented stance to discuss some of the most crucial issues lying ahead. Central questions will be:

  • how to address and manage detrimental systemic repercussions of the Covid-19 crisis impacts,
  • how to address climate change risks and ensure the urgent transition to a low-carbon economy,
  • how to define new roles and the scope of mandates of central banks in the era of climate change,
  • how to overhaul and refine the current EU’s crisis management and deposit insurance framework.
