The European Economic and Social Committee set up the Sustainable Development Observatory in 2006 in order to ensure a coherent horizontal approach to sustainable development by integrating its social, environmental, and economic dimensions in the Committee's policy recommendations.
We are 33 members drawn from a wide range of interests and representing all Committee's areas of consultative works.
The Sustainable Development Observatory is the only body at the level of a European institution that is dedicated exclusively to promote sustainable policies across all sectors.
We promote and enable civil society dialogue on sustainable development related matters through the organisation of hearings, conferences, exchange of best practices, workshops, going-local activities. Read more about us.
