The mission of the ESDN Office is to help improve national SD strategy processes in Europe by facilitating a continuous exchange of experiences between the relevant national key actors in the implementation of nationa sustainable development strategies. Current key functions of the ESDN Office are:

  • to maintain a website that serves the ESDN and the public as an up-to-date “one-stop-shop” on SD strategies and related activities throughout Europe,
  • to support the ESDN Associate Members in finding information on SD strategies;
  • to help the ESDN Association Executive Committee and Advisory Board in finding and articulating common interests, and
  • to support the formulation of common “products” or “services” of the ESDN.

The activities of the ESDN Office are overseen by the Executive Committee and the Advisory Board.
