The workshop “What European territory do we want?” was organised by the Department of Spatial Planning and Development in the context of the Luxembourgish Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2015. The purpose of this workshop was to prepare a political debate on European Territorial Scenarios and Visions for 2050 by critically assessing the available material and discussing potential approaches. The target audience of the workshop were policymakers, scientific researchers, and stakeholders from all sectors at the European, transnational, national, and regional level.

The workshop was divided into two main sessions that consisted of keynote presentations and impulse statements to showcase the available material and clarify access points for a political debate.

Session 2 dealt with scenarios as well as scenario-building processes. The discussion topics were:

  • What evidence do we have?
  • What issues do these processes address?
  • What is politically relevant?
  • What are the possible choices?
  • What are the possible outcomes of discussing scenarios?

Session 3 dealt with visions as well as visioning processes. The discussion topics were:

  • Is Europe ready for discussing a territorial vision?
  • To whom should a vision be addressed?
  • For which policy fields could a vision be relevant?
  • Which policymakers could be addressed?

On the basis of the workshop results and conclusions, an expert was invited to prepare a report that is meant to function as an input paper for the political process under the Luxembourgish Presidency. This report will be made available on this website in June 2015.

The presentations are available below.
