The Greek Platform for Development, as part of the Sustainable Europe for All Program, participated in the European Week for Sustainable Development by implementing the “Together we can transform the world” campaign.

The European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) is a pan-European initiative aimed at promoting and promoting actions and events promoting sustainable development, held from 30 May to 5 June 2019.

The purpose of the campaign is to inform the general public about Sustainable Development Goals and the changes that can be made at individual and institutional levels. The focus of the campaign on 6 of the 17 Global Objectives (Objective 4: Quality Education, Objective 8: Decent Work and Economic Development, Objective 10: Less Disparities, Objective 13: Climate Action, Objective 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, Objective 17: Collaboration on Goals to be examined in the UN High Level Policy Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) 9-18 July 2019 in New York.

Nearly 4 years since the adoption of Agenda 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals, Greece is now starting the process of developing a National Implementation Plan for Global Objectives, and there is still a gap in informing citizens about how to make small changes from the our daily habits. The “Together we can transform the world” campaign was created on the “DRO / REQUEST” motif. With the verb ΔΡΟ there are acts that can bring change at an individual level, while with the verb ΑΠΑΙΤΩ are presented requests of the IS for reform at the national institutional level.

The campaign’s proposals are the result of collaboration between the members of the Greek Platform: ActionAid Hellas, Equal Society, PRAKSIS, Earth and the World without Wars and Violence.
