Conference: ’A social and green agenda for the next decade’

The European Environment Bureau (EEB), the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the Social Platform see 2009 as a crucial year in setting a truly sustainable agenda. A new European Commission will start its work with setting out its five year strategic objectives and the budget implications.

Therefore, the EEB, ETUC and the Social Platform have decided to launch a participatory campaign to develop ideas and create a broad consensus on a Social and Green Agenda for the next Decade, for promotion to the new European Commission and European Parliament as well as to the EU Member States.

As an outcome of this debate a two layered Agenda for the Next Decade will be adopted and consist of:

  • A short document agreed by all civil society organizations, outlining the vision, the key challenges, targets and priority actions for the coming decade.
  • More detailed proposals/strategies coming from working groups that are supporting the main document but that do not necessarily need to be subscribed by all civil society actors.

On 29 & 30 January 2009 a Kick off Conference will be organized to start the preparatory process of developing a sustainable agenda for the next decade. HEAL will be part of the process.
