    On 13 and 14 February 2014, over 150 civil society representatives gathered at the EESC to discuss their positions on a global Post-2015 framework for sustainable development.

    Rio+20: a milestone on the road to sustainable development - EESC Position Paper
    ”The European Economic and Social Committee’s adoption of three related opinions at the same time – on Rio+20, resource efficiency, and a low-carbon economy – highlights the unique, cross-cutting role of sustainable development as a policy area. It is not merely about environmental issues. It aims at making the best possible use of our limited global resources by coordinating environmental, economic and social policies.” Mario Campli, President of the EESC’s Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment Section
