14th ESDN Workshop "Developing the ESDN peer learning approach to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for SD and the SDGs", Berlin, 14 June 2016

The 14th ESDN Workshop, “Developing the ESDN peer learning approach to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for SD and the SDGs”, will take place in Berlin on 14 June 2016. The workshop is organized by the ESDN in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. 

The main goal of the workshop is to develop, together with national policy-makers and experts, the ESDN peer learning approach in order to offer a useful and practical mechanism for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda (the first ESDN Peer Learning Platform will be held in early autumn 2016). This will be based on experiences with international and national peer review and peer learning processes in the context of sustainable development as well as on practical needs in the various countries. 

Against this background, the workshop will have the following objectives:

  • To provide the opportunity to exchange and discuss the needs of national policy-making with regards to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for SD, and to share experiences and perspectives on how to design policies and processes, and how to link them to national sustainable development strategies;
  • To exchange good practices among EU Member States and other European countries as a learning exercise, and space for conversation and exchange.

This workshop addresses national policymakers that coordinate and work on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for SD, and those experts and stakeholders who have experience with peer reviews and peer learning mechanisms.
