Charta 2020
A charter of European Public Goods

Charta 2020 is a vision for a democratic and egalitarian European Union and a demand to recognize 20 European public goods essential to reshaping any future European political space. It outlines the conditions for European integration across 20 public goods that Europeans should endorse to make Europe a better and safer place for all citizens and residents. By definition, a public good is a good that eludes both rivalry and exclusion, a good made available for everyone, such that no one will be competing with another for them, nor be excluded from their use. Charta 2020 was promoted by Agora Europe and several other organizations and has been collectively written by international practitioners and scholars, coordinated by former MEP Rui Tavares and Caterina Di Fazio, at the European University Institute in February 2019 and presented at the European Parliament, the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Maastricht University in occasion of the Spitzenkandidaten debate, and Columbia University in Spring 2019. Charta 2020 transnational joint launch was scheduled for Europe Day on May 9, 2019.
