What is EPPC?
The European Public Policy Conference (EPPC) is a conference organised every year by students from the Hertie School of Governance. In 2008, the EPPC was founded to address the most challenging issues of today and possible disputes that may emerge tomorrow.
The conference empowers students and future policy leaders to take charge of and direct their own holistic experience by addressing the public policy issues that they consider to be the most relevant at the time.
We are currently living in a time of multiple, overlapping crises: the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the war of Russian aggression in Ukraine, the subsequent energy and food security crises, and of course the cascading effects of continued and accelerating global heating and climate change. This has led some analysts to term our current era the “Age of Permacrisis”.
Europe in the Face of Crisis
Countdown to EPPC 2023
Our keynote speakers bring unique insights and alternative perspectives to the discourse on topics such as, sustainability and climate action, boosting risilience, and pressing challenges as a result of current events.
We offer our participants the opportunity to engage with prominent leaders and experts to discuss pressing challenges regarding the circular economy. We are excited to kick off the conference with a panel to set the context for the entire conference.
Our workshops are an excellent opportunity for participants to combine theoretical insights gained through the keynotes and panels with practical applications. Through direct and interactive exchange, participants acquire practical insights and learn how to deal with real-world situations.
