ESDN Conference 2013, Vienna+10: National Sustainable Development Strategies in Europe – Taking stock, new developments and future challenges, Vienna/Austria, 13-14 June 2013
The ESDN Conference 2013 took place in Vienna, Austria on 13-14 June 2013. The conference was organized by the ESDN in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. In total, 55 participants from 20 countries (19 European countries and New Zealand) attended the conference.
The ESDN Conference 2013 had the title “Vienna +10: National Sustainable Development Strategies in Europe – Taking stock, new developments and future challenges”. Ten years after the first ESDN Conference in Vienna, in 2003, which provided important inputs on SD strategies in Europe, we revisited NSDSs as one of the core themes of the ESDN.
The objective of the ESDN Conference 2013 was to take stock of NSDSs processes and objectives, investigate past achievements, explore new developments, and identify future challenges. The conference included six sessions:
