The European Economic and Social Committee adopted an opinion on Europe’s role in the implementation of the SDGs


“The 2030 Agenda – a European Union committed to sustainable development globally” was adopeted in mid-October in plenary session of the European Economic and Social Committee. It had been requested by the European Commission as a contribution to the ongoing preparation of the Commission initiative ‘Next steps for a sustainable European future’. The opinion reflects the outcome of two big conferences at the EESC with representatives from civil society. The opinion calls upon the EU institutions and the Member States to urgently agree on the way forward ‘at the highest political level, through an interinstitutional agreement between the Commission, the Council and the Parliament’, in order to establish a robust basis for further political action. The Committee has also proposed to set up a European Sustainable Development Civil Society Forum in order to give civil society a strong role in the implementation and monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals.
