Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030

The conference will highlight the position taken by the EESC in its opinion on the Reflection Paper "Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030", which is due for adoption in September 2019. The event will provide concrete and constructive recommendations to the new European Commission and the new European Parliament.

"Use-value" is back: the key to sustainable competitiveness

October 02, 2019

As productivity continues to increase, providing highly-specialised and certified-quality products becomes ever more important for boosting economic well-being, more so than mass low-cost production. Moreover, the increasing focus on the integrated use-value of products and services now offsets the emphasis on the exchange value - the price.

This development is particularly advantageous for European producers: our competitiveness relies on our ability to provide diverse, specialised products, rather than on competing on price against regions with more extended economies of scale. If you wish to be part of the debate on re-orienting production through innovative business practices, we look forward to welcoming you on 3 October.

October 06, 2019

The Forum, organized by the five UN regional commissions and Thailand’s Ministry of Energy, will bring together experts from the energy sector, representatives from governments, UN entities, international organizations and other stakeholders to explore pathways to close the gap between energy targets and actions, and discuss major issues and demonstrate actions to achieve SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy) and meet commitments on climate change mitigation. The Forum will include a series of roundtables, parallel sessions and side events on energy issues such as clean cooking, access to electricity, renewable energy, energy efficiency and cleaner use of fossil fuels.

International Symposium and High-level Event on Action for Climate Empowerment

October 12, 2019

The events aim to contribute to “The Year of Ambition” (2019), which seeks to increase ambition and participation by all parts of society in the climate action agenda through a series of high-level events, including the UN Climate Action Summit in September and the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to UNFCCC in Santiago, Chile, in December.
