EU Member States and the European Parliament are preparing their respective responses to the Commission’s Communication ‘Next steps for a sustainable European future’. To make the best use of these timely opportunities, CONCORD has set out 10 recommendations for each of these actors, so they can rectify the lack of ambition the EU has displayed thus far in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The EU urgently needs the courage and conviction to take a great leap towards a sustainable future, following good practice by some of its Member States such as Finland. By adopting an ambitious overarching strategy for sustainable development and guiding European policies towards transformation, the EU and its Member States can make a real difference, for people in Europe and around the world.Jussi Kanner
