By SDG Watch Europe

16 June 2020 – 10 am to 11.30 am CET

Online (information on how to connect will be sent a few days prior to the event)

As part of SDG Watch Europe’s ‘MEPs for SDGs’ initiative – which aims to bring

Parliamentarians that care for people and the planet to work together for an ambitious and

integrated implementation of the SDGs – we invite you to an online discussion on the role of the European Parliament in the reform of the European Semester and how to push for an

overarching strategy.

The debate between MEPs and CSO representatives from different sectors will contribute

to answering the following questions:

  • How can the reform of the European Semester, declared a central piece of the new

European Commission, deliver on all SDGs and how can we ensure that this Commission

takes a holistic approach to Sustainable Development?

  • In this new political framework, how can the European Parliament play a stronger role in

holding the European Commission accountable for the ambitious implementation of

the SDGs?

  • What are MEPs planning to do in order for the EP and the EC to address the necessity

of a new strategy for Europe in line with the goals and targets of Agenda 2030?

  • How can MEPs be enabled to better engage with citizens and civil society on SDG

monitoring and implementation and take part in the European Semester Process?

With the participation of:

  • MEP Aurore Lalucq
  • MEP Petros Kokkalis
  • MEP Pernille Weiss
  • MEP Billy Kelleher (tbc)
  • MEP Ville Niinistö (tbc)
