The annual conference of the European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC) aimed to urge the need to transform politics, society and the economy as required by the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The academia, civil society, the private sector and public bodies need to unite forces to push towards a sustainable Europe. Unfortunately, the anticipated fundamental change remains distant facing many hindrances. The conference attended by 200 people coming from over 20 different countries was dedicated to identifying the most important blocks and to fostering a European debate on the implementation on the UN’s SDGs in Europe.
