The European Commission is organising the European Development Days 2016 in Brussels on 15-16 June. The two day event aims to generate new ideas, take action and shape the future with world leaders, young leaders and hundreds of speakers, civil society organisations and international organisations.
A record number of over 6,000 development professionals from around 150 countries are expected to attend what has become Europe’s leading forum on global development and cooperation. The European Development Days will focus on implementing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, building upon 5 vital ”P”s for sustainable development: Partnership, Peace, Prosperity, Planet and People.
Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, said: ”The 10th anniversary of the European Development Days is focused on results: turning the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals from commitments into actions. This is Europe’s open invitation to the world to reflect with us how our policies, partnerships and resources can best be put into use to support global development, eradicate poverty once and for all, and shift our planet onto a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous path”.
