SDG Watch Europe launch - civil society groups, including WECF, join forces to push for a sustainable future

Seventy-five diverse civil society organisations have today joined forces to formally launch SDG Watch Europe. This broad coalition will work to ensure that the European Union and its Member States live up to their commitments, made when signing the Agenda 2030 agreement in New York last September, to enable a sustainable future at home and abroad.

A year ago, governments across the world agreed on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that calls for a bold transformation in policy and practice. Its 17 ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are aimed at ensuring that decisions by governments contribute to a more sustainable, inclusive and equal future for all by 2030.

SDG Watch Europe is being formally launched on 13 October at 18.00–20.30 at the North Rhine-Westphalia Representation Rue Montoyer 47, Brussels 1000. WECF Director Sascha Gabizon will speak at the launch on the work of the Women's Major Group and the Women 2030 program.

Seventy-five diverse civil society organisations have decided to join forces to formally launch SDG Watch Europe. This broad coalition will work to ensure that the European Union and its Member States live up to their commitments, made when signing the Agenda 2030 agreement in New York last September, to enable a sustainable future at home and abroad.
