The EESC will push for Rio Conference results at EU level

According to recent updates by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), Staffan Nilsson, the EESC president, is committed to working towards the implementation of the Rio+20 conference results at EU level, taking care at all times to give a key role to civil society in framing the Sustainable Development Goals.
Since the Rio conference, the EESC has led a series of follow-up events as, in words of Mr. Nilsson, "the road from Rio is at least as important as the road to Rio". More broadly, the Committee recognises the limits of the Rio+20 agreement. However  but it is convinced that the agreed text is a good basis for EU civil society and the institutions to work on practical ways in which our economies and societies can develop sustainably.
