"Achieving the SDGs through a Sustainable and Just Transition: Challenges and responses to COVID-19"
The 18th ESDN Workshop took place virtually on 24 June 2020. The topic of this year’s Workshop was “Achieving the SDGs through a Sustainable and Just Transition: Challenges and responses to Covid-19”. The objectives of the Workshop were to provide insights beyond the current ramifications of the Covid-19 crisis and focused on the impacts that Covid-19 will have on sustainable development and the European Green Deal and how European policymakers can strengthen sustainable development policy-making and prevent sustainable development from becoming marginalized. Another aspect of the Workshop was focused on the how the Covid-19 recovery will affect the European countries at the national level in the implementation of the SDGs. The Workshop was organized by the ESDN in cooperation with Romanian Government – Department of Sustainable Development.
