European Sustainable Development Week aims to contribute to sustainable development through activities, projects and events, and to create visibility via a common platform. The goal is to encourage more people to act in a sustainable way and to raise awareness of the 2030 Agenda.
European Sustainable Development Week
During European Sustainable Development Week 2019, twenty-seven countries across Europe carried out more than 6,500 activities, including almost fifty in Switzerland – in fifteen cantons spanning all four linguistic regions. Cities, municipalities, organisations, the private sector and educational institutions hosted a wide range of events covering the whole spectrum of sustainable development topics. The main themes were sustainable consumption and production (Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12), climate (SDG 13), sustainable cities and municipalities (SDG 11), health and well-being (SDG 3), and high-quality education (SDG 4).
European Sustainable Development Week takes place every year from 30 May to 5 June.
