Civil Society Organisations’ SDGs Watch Letter to First Vice- President Timmermans
“From June 2015 onwards, a considerable number of EU-based civil society organisations from the sustainability, development, environment and social sectors have been meeting to consider what we can do together to contribute to the implementation, monitoring and follow-up of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, both in Europe and beyond. As European Civil Society we want to make the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda a reality, and our common ambition is to ensure that the EU achieves all of the Sustainable Development Goals and targets, and strongly supports low and middle income countries around the world in equally achieving it.”
These are the first words sent to Vice-President Commissioner Timmermans by civil society organisations on 9 February 2016 to request implementation of the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals by EU institutions. Read the full letter here.
