Next ESDN Workshop

The 19th ESDN Workshop will be taking place in Vienna, Austria on 14-15 June 2021!

The title of this Workshop is  “Parliamentary Mechanisms in the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda” and will look more closely at national level and stakeholder mechanisms in Europe that exist to aid in Parliamentary involvement in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. The Workshop will feature a mixture of keynote presentations, interactive sessions, and many opportunities for discussion. Due to COVID-19, the Workshop will be held as a hybrid event: Day one (14 June) will take place at the Austrian Parliament for a small contingent of speakers, but will be open to all participants virtually. On Day 2 (15 June), the Workshop will be held virtually.

Leonore Gewessler, the Austrian Federal Minister for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, Karoline Edtstadler, the Federal Minister for the EU and Constitution at the Austrian Federal Chancellery, and Harald Dossi, Secretary General of the Austrian Parliament, are already confirmed as keynote speakers!
