8th Civil Society Forum For Sustainability

Bringing CSOs together to develop civil society demands to the EU on the future of citizens deliberation and European Green Deal for a green and just transition (2024-2029) 

A healthy democratic ecosystem is composed and enrooted in the role of civil society and other organisations. Following the 2024 European elections, civil society organisations (CSOs) have a crucial role to play in shaping the direction of the European Union’s policies and priorities for the new mandate of the European Commission and Parliament (2024-2029). The European Green Deal (EGD), and Agenda 2030, with their ambitious agendas, aim to tackle climate change, to promote sustainability and to ensure a social and green transition in Europe. These profound changes require structured engagement and meaningful participation of people and CSOs to ensure such transformations benefit all members of society. While progress has been made since the adoption of the EGD, challenges remain in effectively involving people and CSOs in decision-making processes. Therefore, the Forum will bring civil society organisations together to develop civil society demands to the EU on the future of citizens deliberation and EGD for green and social transition.  

Why should you attend? 

  • Learn about barriers, challenges, lessons learned and good practices from CSOs engagement in EGD processes. 
  • Learn about the findings of the EU level citizens deliberations: What citizens want from the EGD? 
  • Develop CSO demands to the EU by identifying and developing recommendations for the future of citizens deliberation and EGD.  
  • Network in an inviting space, foster collaboration, and dialogue among CSOs to develop shared strategies for advocacy.
