Conference on “The SDGs and the Future of Europe"

Adopted in 2015 by all 193 UN Member States, the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs set quantitative targets for 2030 covering economic development, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. The European Union and its member states have committed to these Goals but have not taken bold actions needed for their achievement, like the alignment of both their strategies and budgets with the SDGs. The upcoming elections to the European Parliament in 2019, the next Multiannual Financial Framework covering the decisive years 2021-2027, and the formation of the next EU Commission are the EU’s last opportunity to lay the ground for a sustainable future in Europe.
 
To address this important moment in time, the European Network of Political Foundations (ENoP) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) are organizing a conference that will explore ways of making the SDGs an integral part of the political agenda in the EU in alignment with these upcoming high-level events.
 

Membership of both networks, as well as experts from academia and politics, are invited to attend in order to promote exchange and develop concrete initiatives that will steer the European Union towards implementation and achievement of the SDGs.  Featuring dialogue, plenary and breakout sessions, the conference is supposed to be a kick-off event and aims to incentivize further joint activities of the membership of ENoP and SDSN in Europe.
