EU’s Multi-stakeholder Platform on SDGs presents inputs to the Commission Reflection Paper “Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030”

On 11 October, the Commission's high level multi-stakeholder platform on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) met for the second time and adopted common proposals from civil society, public and private to move towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030.

Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, who chairs the Platform, said: "It is so encouraging to see such a broad group of stakeholders coming together and agreeing on the way forward on implementing the SDGs – from Birdlife Europe to BusinessEurope we have managed to get everybody on the same page. This is a minor miracle, and is good news for people and for the planet."

This joint contribution will feed into the upcoming European Commission reflection paper “Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030”. The paper can be found here
