EEAC Annual Conference 2018: Towards a sustainable Europe in 2030

The realization of an ambitious and global sustainability transformation for the people, planet and prosperity with peace and partnership requires global action across all countries and policy areas. The European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils unite the forces of academia, civil society as well as private sector and public bodies to strive for a Sustainable Europe in the very spirit of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

To implement this Agenda and Agreement a sustainability transformation is required. The European Union and its member states will have to fundamentally change many policy areas. The EEAC recommends focusing on key lock-ins that have proven difficult to change but hold significant potential to shift towards sustainable development.

The 26th EEAC Annual Conference will be dedicated to identifying some of these key leverages and to explore new ideas about how to push them.

The diversity of EEAC’s scientific and stakeholder councils will meet in Berlin on 11 October 2018 and deliberate with high-level experts from academia, society and politics.

During the conference, three breakout groups will serve substantial debates on such topics as:

1) the institutional foundations for transformative governance in Europe

2) sustainable finance as a transformative lever for European Policy

3) the radical changes, potentials and risks of digitalization for a Sustainable Europe
