The European Sustainable Development Network (ESDN) is a network of public administrators and other experts dealing with sustainable development (SD) in Europe.


The ESDN has been bringing together European policymakers and public servants in the field of sustainable development since 2002. Over the course of the Network's history, it has expanded to include more policymakers, scientists and practitioners from all over Europe.


The ESDN subscribes to the principles of Sustainable Development and the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Sustainable Development satisfies the needs of  the present without compromising those of future generations. It strives to achieve a balance between economic, social and ecological aspects.


As a Network of public servants and policymakers, the ESDN facilitates an active exchange of ideas and best practices to make sustainable development strategies more effective.
