Europe's Manifestos for Our Common Future


As we approach the European parliamentary elections, the future of the European Union will soon be shaped by newly elected members. Political parties have released their manifestos, each presenting a vision for Europe's future. To evaluate these manifestos against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda, the Civil Society Forum for Sustainability has developed a comprehensive assessment tool.

Key highlights


  • Green and Just Transition: The assessment focuses on the alignment of political manifestos with civil society's priorities for a sustainable and equitable transition.
  • Scorecard Results: The European Green Party (EGP) leads with a strong commitment to 16 out of 17 SDGs, while the Party of the European Left (PEL) and Party of European Socialists (PES) show varying levels of commitment. The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party (ALDE) and European People's Party (EPP) demonstrate lower commitment levels.
  • Detailed Evaluation: The report evaluates each manifesto based on themes such as Social Justice, Good Governance, and Planetary Boundaries, providing a clear overview of each party's stance and proposed actions.
