Joint Letter to First Vice-President Frans Timmermans on 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Wednesday, 10 February 2016 - 11am

Cooperatives Europe, together with other Civil Society Organisations (CSO) from the sustainable development, environment and social sectors have addressed a letter to Frans Timmermans, First Vice-President of the European Commission, calling on the EU and its member states to develop a Sustainable Development Strategy with a timeline of 2030 and establish a concrete implementation and follow-up plan as well as a monitoring system.

The CSOs Coalition will be meeting from June 2015 onwards and will expect a broad consultation with all stakeholders concerning policy implementation on the part of the Commission. 

The senior representatives of the 83 organisations that have signed the document are looking to meet with Timmermans to discuss the proposals.
