Civil Society Forum for Sustainability: Shaping the European Green Deal
On 25 and 26 January 2023, Civil Society Organisations with an interest in sustainability, a socially Just Transition and climate and environmental action will join the online meeting to deliberate on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the European Voluntary Review (EU VR).
In the framework of the REAL DEAL,a Horizon 2020 project, SOLIDAR, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and SDG Watch Europe are organising the Civil Society Forum for Sustainability: Shaping the European Green Deal, a space for civil society organisations from across Europe to come together and exchange views on the European Green Deal (EGD), the EU's strategy to strategy to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050.
The third forum is taking place for two half-days online:
- Wednesday, 25 January 2023, from 14h00 to 17h00 CET
- Thursday, 26 January 2023, from 09h30 to 12h30 CET
The objective of the third forum is to discuss and establish the role that civil society can play in monitoring the SDGs as part of the European Voluntary Review for 2023, through an interactive discussion with participants and high-level speakers. Moreover, the forum aims to engage participants in a broader interactive discussion on assessing the progress of the EGD and SDGs. The outcomes of the meetings will be compiled into a report that will be shared with relevant policymakers, such as relevant DGs in the European Commission, MEPs and EP Committees, Permanent Representations to the EU and more.
Further information about the third forum, including a draft agenda of the meeting, will be available soon on the REAL DEAL website, alongside the websites of project partner's.
