13th ESDN Workshop "Strengthening environmental and sustainable development dialogue in Europe in the context of the 2030 SD Agenda", Paris, 12-13 November 2015

The 13th ESDN Workshop, “Strengthening environmental and sustainable development dialogue in Europe in the context of the 2030 SD Agenda”, took place in Paris on 12-13 November 2015. This ESDN Workshop was a joint event with the EEAC Annual Conference 2015, “Civil Society and climate change: On the road to Paris”, starting in the evening of 12 November and running until noon on 13 November. Both events were organized in cooperation with the French Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.

The ESDN Workshop focused on environmental and SD dialogues in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In recent years, the environmental dialogue between policy makers and stakeholders has gained important momentum in France with the unique annual “conférences environnementale” that bring together all stakeholders around the ecological transition towards sustainable development. The ESDN Workshop took stock of European experiences of environmental and sustainable development dialogues in different countries and reflect upon how to improve stakeholder dialogues, also in the context of the 2030 SD Agenda.

On this occasion, the ESDN and EEAC also met Ségolène Royal, the French Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, who invited us to a reception at the ministry for labelled COP21 projects.
