Civil Society Forum for Sustainability – Shaping the European Green Deal

By SDG Watch Europe

Held alongside the SDG Watch General Assembly, more than 50 civil society organisations from across Europe gathered in Brussels, Belgium, for the kick-off of the “Civil Society Forum for Sustainability: Shaping the European Green Deal” on the 9th and 10th of June. 

Organised in the framework of the REAL DEAL project, the forum serves as a space for civil society organisations from across Europe to come together and exchange views on the European Green Deal (EGD), the EU’s strategy to strategy to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050. The forum is co-organised by SDG Watch Europe, SOLIDAR and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB). 

Specifically focused upon assessing the gaps and opportunities in implementing an ambitious EGD and the 2030 Agenda, representatives of civil society organisations came together to deliberate on key themes, including economic models and governance for a just transition, the international dimensions of the EGD, ensuring a gender-just and socially equitable EGD, and bringing the EGD closer to citizens, as well as the EGD’s broader compatibility with other policy frameworks and processes. 

The Forum will gather three times in 2022, with the next meeting planned for September 2022. Find out more about the forum at the Real Deal website here.
