About the Project

EMS Agenda 2050 has solicited feedback from members of the EMS community to write a new Agenda for the Future that envisions bold and innovative possibilities for EMS advancement over the next three decades.

A Technical Expert Panel (TEP) with members from diverse professional backgrounds is steering the project, leading the drafting of the new Agenda and gathering important input from the community and public.

To ensure regular and direct communication between the Agenda development team and stakeholder groups, a liaison from each national organization is appointed to provide input on the development of the agenda.
