Coming up: Civil Society Forum for Sustainability – Shaping the European Green Deal

May 11, 2022

On 9 and 10 June 2022, Civil Society Organisations with an interest in sustainability, a socially Just Transition and climate and environmental action will gather in Brussels to conduct a mid-term review of the European Green Deal.

In the framework of the Real Deal project funded by the EU programme Horizon 2020, SOLIDAR, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and SDG Watch Europe are organising the Civil Society Forum for Sustainability: Shaping the European Green Deal, a space for civil society organisations from across Europe to come together and exchange views on the European Green Deal (EGD), the EU’s strategy to strategy to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050.

The Forum will gather 3 times in 2022. The first ever Forum is taking place on 9 and 10 June 2022 in Brussels, Belgium. The objective of this first Forum, which will bring together around 50 participants for in person discussions, is to flesh out the gaps of the EGD towards achieving the United Nations 2030 Agenda, identify the EGD’s shortcomings and disconnections from other relevant processes and exchange views on how to address these issues and strengthen the Green Deal. Results of the discussions will be compiled into a report that will be shared with relevant policymakers, such as relevant DGs in the European Commission, MEPs and EP Committees, Permanent Representations to the EU and more. Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to share their input directly with policymakers during the closing session of the Forum’s meeting.

Further information about the first Forum, including a draft agenda of the meeting, is available on the right side of this page, under “Downloads”.
