Feltrinelli Camp. For a new globalization
Guiding questions

With the pandemic and the climate crisis, the role of the State has come back to the centre of economic, social and political life. In order to counter the virus, huge economic plans have been approved and public debt has surged as a consequence. Communities’ need for support from public authorities has started to change people’s attitude towards government’s intervention.

Is this a transitory phase or are we witnessing a stable return of the State into the economic scene? If the latter is true, can public actors once again become the engine of equitable development and widespread prosperity? What can be the role of States in shaping a more humane globalization?

The European Feltrinelli Camp “For a New Globalization” aims to foster the rethinking of models and practices for the transformation of social actors toward a more fairer and sustainable economy, starting from the State and involving the private sector and civil society.

The Camp is inspired by the awareness that our economies are facing historical challenges. A transformational approach needs to take into account political, financial and resource constraints. At the same time it needs to be conscious that the limit of what we can do is given just by the possible strategies that we are able to imagine.

A new economy, more equal, green and prosperous, is possible. But we need to ask ourselves which form our new society should take and how we can get there. Therefore, it is necessary to devise new forms of organisation for the State, the market and local communities.

At the Feltrinelli Camp, researchers, activists and practitioners in the relevant sectors will discuss a set of practical actions that can make it possible to develop a just society and a sustainable economy. The Feltrinelli Camp will explore challenges and priorities for a new path of shared development, outlining new models for our economies, to address the most urgent problems of today.
