The European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) is an initiative to stimulate and make visible activities, projects and events that promote sustainable development. It takes place from 30 May until 5 June.
The recently adopted global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) articulates key issues that call for urgent action at all levels and by all stakeholders. The European Sustainable Development Week (30 May-5 June) aims to contribute to the awareness of these problems by promoting the organization of activities that have a thematic link to and support the 17 SDGs.
The ESDW will act as an umbrella for existing national sustainable development weeks in other countries such as France, Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic and will trigger new initiatives, activities and events in EU Member States and other European countries.
Who may register activities?
The registration is open to all forms of foundations, community organizations, associations, NGOs, government agencies, research centres, educational institutions, museums and businesses, as well as individual citizens. The most important criterion for eligibility to take part in the platform is that the project addresses one or more dimensions of sustainable development and it is not exclusively profit-oriented. ESDW activities should take place between 30 May and 5 June. In case an activity is scheduled over a time period of multiple days, at least one of these days needs to be within this week.
Activities will able to be registered and viewed in a website that will be a perfect platform to promote them and raise the number of participants.
