ESDN Conference 2015, “Implementation of the Post-2015 Agenda at the EU and national level: Designing effective governance architectures and strategic frameworks”, Luxembourg, 8-9 October 2015

It is our pleasure to inform you that the ESDN Conference 2015 will take place in Luxembourg on 8-9 October 2015, organized in cooperation with the incoming Luxembourgish EU Presidency. The conference is entitled, “Implementation of the Post-2015 Agenda at the EU and national level: Designing effective governance architectures and strategic frameworks”.

The United Nations is currently in the process of defining a Post-2015 Agenda that will be launched at a summit in September 2015. There have been numerous inputs to the agenda, notably a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The main aim of the ESDN Conference 2015 is to discuss how the Post-2015 Agenda and SDGs will be taken up and implemented at the EU and national level in Europe, which governance architecture and strategic frameworks need to be set up, and how the different stakeholder groups will be involved in the implementation process.

More information about the conference topic and a Draft Conference Program will be distributed soon.
