EEAC’s latest study – “Twenty-five years on: Progressing the sustainable development and environmental agenda in the EU and the role of the EEAC ‘
As part of its 25th anniversary the EEAC Network commissioned David Baldock to write a paper on Progressing the sustainable development and environmental agenda in the EU and the role of the EEAC network. The purpose of this paper is a review of the period since 1992, reflecting on some of the major themes, concepts, drivers and constraints, and the players involved. Most visible amongst those players are of course the European institutions, national and regional governments, NGOs and lobbies. Of special interest here, however, is an informal network first established in 1993: the European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils (EEAC).
This paper does not attempt a studied history, still less an evaluation of this engagement, but it does try to capture some of the main themes and the ways in which they were addressed by the EEAC against a background of EU developments, David Baldock was quoted as saying.
The EEAC Network is pleased to share this paper as part of the outcome documents of its 25th annual conference: Towards the 2030 Agenda and beyond: European cooperation within a new citizens–science–policy interface. Read More
