In November 2020, the European Commission published its Staff Working Document (SWD) “Delivering on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – A comprehensive approach”. The SWD explains how the European Commission is “taking forward its commitment to sustainable development, the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs through its internal and external action policies, while also monitoring progress at Member State and European Union levels." However, the Staff Working Document merely provides an overview of existing initiatives of the European Commission. Five years after the SDGs were adopted, we have yet only seen a reaffirmation of the EC’s commitment towards the SDGs without real action on what they entail. We have asked key stakeholders, what they think should be the next step in this endless effort to secure that we achieve the SDGs by 2030. Meet Members of the European Parliament and representatives from NGOs, who will comment on the latest staff working document: • Marie-Luise Abshagen, Head of Sustainability Policies at German NGO Forum on Environment and Development and Steering Group member of SDG Watch Europe • Rebecca Humphries, Senior Public Affairs Officer at WWF Brussels – what is our demand as CSO actors and what is the wishes to the MPs. • Niels Fuglsang, MEP S&D (ITRI) and initiator of European Parliamentarians for the Global Goals • Petros Kokkalis, MEP GUE (ENVI) Moderator: Julie Rosenkilde, Director of Nyt Europa Supported by Europa-Nævnet
