Inequalities between people and countries have reached staggering heights. The social contract is under unprecedented pressure, as witnessed by the multiplication of protests, marches and social unrest against austerity, inequalities and injustice all over the world. So, what is it about the principle of “Leaving No One Behind” that our leaders have not understood?
CONCORD co-signed an open Letter addressed to EU leaders from 150+ civil society organisations demanding sustainable development be honed as EU’s top priority for the next five years.
In the wake of the European Commission’s newly launched Reflection Paper on Sustainable Development, CONCORD asks current and future EU leaders to adopt an overarching SDG strategy.
The Cotonou Partnership Agreement is coming to an end in 2020. To ensure a fair ground leading to a “partnership of equals”, CONCORD has developed a list of recommendations, serving as a contribution from civil society to the ongoing EU-ACP negotiations to ensure mutually beneficial priorities.
Many EU and its Member States are implementing the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in an innovative way. Therefore, CONCORD shares these good practices from across Europe to inspire each other on how to implement the SDGs.
