26th EEAC Annual Conference
Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030: Key leverages for transformation
The Annual Conference is dedicated to identifying the key leverages and to foster our common European debate on the implementation of the SDGs in Europe. The rich diversity of EEAC’s scientific and stakeholder councils will meet in Berlin and deliberate with high-level experts from academia, society and politics.
The European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC), unite the forces of academia, civil society, the private sector and public bodies to push towards a Sustainable Europe in the very spirit of the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
However, implementing this Agenda and Agreement requires a sustainability transformation that so far tends to remain an abstract ambition rather than an inclusive and decided practice. The European Union will need to fundamentally change many policy areas, as will its member states. In order to prioritize we recommend focussing on some key lock-ins that have proven difficult to change but hold significant potential to shift towards sustainable development.
During the conference, three breakout groups will provide focal points for substantial debates on
- i) the institutional foundations for transformative governance in Europe,
- ii) sustainable finance as a transformative lever for European Policy, and
- iii) the radical changes, potentials and risks of digitalization for a Sustainable Europe.
