In case you missed last month’s ESDN Blog post by Micke Larsson, Secretary General of the Development and Sustainability Council of Åland, he talks about the 6th ESDN Peer Learning Platform, which took place in Mariehamn, Åland Islands on August 30 – 31 2021. The topic of the Platform was “Civil Society and Citizen Involvement and Engagement for the 2030 Agenda”.
“Engaged citizens are one of the most important keys to a successful implementation of the 17 SDGs.”
“The Peer Learning Platform gave us several valuable insights. First of all, there seemed to be a common understanding between the participants of the Peer Learning Platform that engaged citizens are one of the most important keys to a successful implementation of the 17 SDGs. I was happy to hear that governments all over Europe are trying to reach out to civil society organizations in order to establish fruitful cooperation for successful national and local 2030 Agenda implementation.”
He also talks about how Åland deals with sustainable development issues in a localized way.
