A look at the history of the ESDN reveals that ESDN Workshops have played a prominent role in facilitating networking between European SD practitioners and policy advisors.

"Sustainable Development Indicators at the EU level"
The 1st ESDN Workshop was hosted by the ESDN in cooperation with the Portuguese EU Presidency. The workshop was entitled "Sustainable Development Indicators at the EU level" and it took place in Cascais, a seaport in close proximity to Lisbon on 29-30 November 2007. The key purpose of the workshop was to facilitate an informal exchange of standpoints and experiences on sustainable development indicators (SDIs) at the EU level among different groups of public administrators who approach and work with SDIs in different ways. The main objective was to discuss governance related aspects of SDIs. Methodological challenges in developing and applying SDIs were explicitly excluded from the workshop.
