European Sustainable Development Week 2018

30 May 2018 - 5 June 2018

The European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) is an initiative to facilitate the organization of activities that promote sustainable development across Europe. On this occasion, 10 embassies in Berlin, Germany, are engaging with the 2030 Agenda on the theme "Diplomacy for Sustainability" and organising innovative events around the SDGs.

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 ESDW contributes to this ambitious, universal and transformative agenda by promoting the organization of bottom-up activities that have a thematic link to and support the SDGs. As such, the ESDW aims to raise awareness for the 2030 Agenda in Europe and calls upon local stakeholders to actively engage with sustainable development, in general, and the SDGs, in particular.

It is in this context that at the Initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office, 10 European embassies in Berlin organise events on single SDGs to raise awareness and provide a platform for thematic exchange.
