Just after the 2019 European elections, Active Citizenship Network (ACN), the EU branch of the NGO Cittadinanzattiva, the European umbrella association European Consumers Union (ECU) and the coalition Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) decided to promote a political initiative that aims to create the informal Inter-institutional Group “SDGs for well-being and consumers’ protection”.
The Inter-Institutional Group represents the desire of the civil society to contribute to the SDGs and the Green New Deal, aiming to discuss and raise awareness on how the individual, as a consumer, can give her/his contribution. In fact, we strongly believe that citizen and consumer empowerment should be the pillar of the transition towards a more inclusive and sustainable Europe.
The group is opened to the members of the EU Institutions that wish to work together with the civil society to ensure that Europe will be a global leader in the development and implementation of the SDGs.
The Inter-institutional Group aims to be a:
Awareness rising catalyst across Europe for civil society, business, research, media,etc. at local, national and European level.
Dialogue facilitator between the European institutions and stakeholders active in specific fields.
Incubator of good practices in order to facilitate the process of exchange, contamination and dissemination of best practices to enable EU citizens to make sustainable choices.
The Inter-institutional Group “SDGs for well-being and consumers’ protection” will be presented during the digital conference “Makingsustainability an easy choice for EU citizens” that will be held on February 16th, 2021 from 10:00 to 12:00.
To the event will partecipate also ECU President Sergio Veroli and ECU Secretary General Mariano Votta.
