European regional level briefing and consultation on the Sustainable Development Goals and follow-up processes

Conference - Brussels, Belgium

In 2012, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon started preparations for the Post-2015 framework, which will implement the outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference and build on the Millennium Development Goals. The Post-2015 process presents a unique opportunity to address poverty eradication and sustainable development in one single and universal set of Sustainable Development Goals.

On 28 May 2014 the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) in collaboration with the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will organise a regional briefing and consultation on Sustainable Development Goals and the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

The event will provide briefing on latest news and developments from the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals and give regional level Major Groups and other stakeholders the opportunity to contribute with their priorities and offer their regional perspectives.

Date: Wednesday 28 May 2014 | 9:00 – 18:30

Venue: EESC, JDE building, Rue Belliard 99, 1040 Brussels (meeting room: JDE 62)
