ESDN Peer Learning Platforms

Based on the ESDN Proposition on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the ESDN has been organizing Peer Learning Platforms since 2016. These Platforms facilitate the exchange of experiences and good practices between policymakers in national ministries who are responsible for the 2030 Agenda implementation process in their respective country. A unique aspect of the ESDN Peer Learning Platforms is that they take place under the Chatham House Rule, which ensures the identity of participants is not revelaed, allowing for deeper exchanges of experiences, the success and challenges, to take place in an informal setting. 

Next ESDN Peer Learning Platform

5th ESDN Peer Learning Platform, "Sustainable Finance and Sustainability Check: Practical application and experiences in Europe"

The Platform will take place in virtually on 27 November 2020 in cooperation with the Luxembourg Ministry for the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development.

The main objective of the Peer Learning Platform is to have a very informal exchange and interaction between policymakers who are responsible for, or interested in, sustainable finance and sustainability checks. Similar to all ESDN Peer Learning Platforms, the exchange will be based on the Chatham House Rules in order to increase the openness of the discussions.


A look at the history of the ESDN reveals that ESDN Peer Learning Platforms have played a prominent role in facilitating policy learning between European policymakers dealing with sustainable development.
