These illustrations have been created to visualise the key messages of the Presidency report - Developing our economic base: vision for a long-term strategy on sustainable growth. The report by Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, together with this summary, was presented at the Competitiveness Council on 26 and 27 September 2019. The Presidency report highlights that we need to work together in Europe, and globally, for a truly sustainable future. To succeed, the European Union needs a shared, holistic, forward-looking growth agenda. Our aim is to pave the way for a just transition to a climate-neutral economy. To enable continued and increased well-being, our future economic growth must be both environmentally and socially sustainable. We need new, fresh and collaborative ways of achieving growth. In the spirit of this future agenda, which calls for more creativity and an integrated approach, we have put our thoughts into not only writing but also images. It is our wish that these images inspire and catalyse our dialogue and work towards a shared, sustainable future.
