Territorial Vision and Pathways 2050
Brainstorming meeting
House of Catalonia, Bruxelles
26 March 2014
Purpose of ET2050 brainstorming event
• Make Vision 2050 and Pathways as powerful as possible for
policy uptake
• Be as territorial as possible to be different
• Integrate territorial, economic and social arguments (include
innovation, R&D, SME, poverty, youth unemployment, etc.)
• Argue consistently on territorial diversity and cooperation
• Use territorial phenomena/categories (urban system,
connections and access, open spaces (landscapes, nature
etc.), geographic specificities (islands, mountains, etc.).
• Be stronger on European territorial structures
• Develop a pathway for each vision statement giving
responsibility for supporting implementation
• Keep the pathways on policy advice and monitoring
• Use stylistic cartographic illustrations
Current vision statements
Current 14 vision statements:
Open polycentric development
Polycentricity at all scales
Promotion of secondary tier cities
Compact settlement structure
Protecting sensitive land
Developing a green infrastructure across Europe
Valorising cultural landscapes and social capital as key assets
Supporting less developed regions
Sufficient accessibility to open regional potentials
Co-development with neighbouring regions
Improving global connectivity
Mitigation and adaptation to climate change
Resource efficiency
New self-organised governance
Steps ahead: 3 vision building blocks
CORE TERRITORIAL VISION: «Open Polycentric Development»
PATHWAYS TOWARDS 2050: «New Cohesion Policy Approach»
Framework Vision (Not Territorial)
More Europe:
• ONE foreign policy, defense, monetary union, innovation union, energy transistion
to low carbon, climate change mitigation and adaptation policy, … NOT 28 !!
• Qualitative/intangible growth and competitiveness, more than quantitative/tangible
GDP growth
More for More Democracy and Prosperity:
• EU-Neighborhoods co-development (South and East)
Sources for the final drafting:
- Global Europe 2050
- ET2050 Territorial Vision drafts
- Draft Final Report:
Europe as a global player (25,26,27,28)
More creative, ecological and social jobs towards socio-ecological transition (38,41)
Promote citizens empowerment (24,71,74,89)
A New Cohesion Policy Approach
EU Cohesion Policy Reform after 2020
Place-based approach?
(FUAs/Rural Areas)
Multi-level governance of
cohesion funds, enabling
territorial diversity and
ensuring social inclusion
Sectoral approach?
Solidarity approach?
(Member States)
Optimal goverment of
structural funds for energy,
transport, ICT and
environment, matching
decision and problem spaces
Distribution of
equalization funds to
compensate for extracosts of implementing EU
common priorities
The ET2050 Vision answer:
«A blend of the 3 approaches in the context of a more integrated EU»
This is complex, but needed for EU to cope with global and territorial
challenges, while closing the democratic gap between the EU
institutions and the European citizens
Ideas for Territorial Vision statements (1)
Goal: An Open and Polycentric Europe
Connecting Europe globally (Sectoral approach/networks-based)
Network of gateways facilitating flows of people and goods (30,68)
TENT grid embracing all parts of Europe and linking to neighbouring markets
Intelligent energy grid, mobility and production systems favouring transition
towards low carbon economy (35,39,42,43,44)
Co-development with neighbours in macro-regional, transnational and crossborder territories (31,32,34,67,81)
Networking of European cities (Place-based approach)
A European urban system giving development opportunity in all parts (29,56,58)
Cooperation of European Metropolises enhancing competitiveness (59)
Promotion of secondary tier cities as engines of growth (60)
Engaging cities and their hinterland in functional urban regions (???)
Towns as important places for production and services (???)
Territorial integration in cross-border and transnational functional regions (80)
Ideas for Territorial Vision statements (2)
Making Europe regionally balanced (Solidarity approach/MS-based)
Unleashing the regional diversity of development potentials in all regions (17,45,76)
Sufficient infrastructure endowment to open up regional and local potentials
Universal level of services of general interest in all regions (???)
Exploring the endogenous potential of productive rural areas (46)
Islands, Mountain areas, sparsely populated areas etc..... (47,79)
Enhancing Natural and Cultural assets in development (Place-based
Valorising landscape, culture and nature in promoting economic development
Maintain a network of green infrastructure areas covering all Europe (63)
Protect sensitive and more vulnerable land (22,62,78)
Mitigate and adapt territories to climate change (23,69)
Sea becomes a valuable source of economic development (49)
Promote compact settlement structures (20,61)
Pathways towards 2050 (1)
How to structure pathways related to vision statement?
• Each vision statement needs a pathway to be taken
Possible template/structure:
• What is the goal for 2030 and 2050
• What is necessary to do policy wise/implement/invest in?
• Where should the implementation be done?
• Who is responsible for implementation?
• Could authorities at different administrative levels have
(mutually) supporting roles?
• How can policies contribute (Cohesion Policy, sector
policies, national, regional and local policies) to the goals
for 2030 and 2050?
Pathways towards 2050 (2)
Policy pathways of supporting the vision:
• A new generation of Cohesion Policy
Place-based (FUAs/Rural areas) for Cohesion Funds
Optimal government of Structural Funds for energy, transport, ICT networks
and the environment
EU solidarity funds to equalize MS states costs for implementing common
priorities (energy interdependence, migration, …)
• Territorial sensitivity in reforming Sectorial Policy
What should be done in different sector policies to support the vision
A new territorial governance approach
Enhancing Europeanization of planning practices: the “optimal government”
approach (90,93)
Multi-level governance of territorial development challenges: the “place-based
approach” (88,91,92)
Enhancing EU solidarity (???)
• Monitoring territorial targets
Indicators related to the overall goal and vision statements! (94,95,96,97,98)
Illustrating the Vision
How to illustrate the vision and pathways?
Traditionally a challenge
Not maps but more stylistic cartographic illustrations
Display European territorial structures in 2050
Think of a visual aid (such as the Blue Banana, Grapes
etc.) in support of the communication.
