Meet the WISIONS Team in Brussels

The WISIONS team will participate in the event “Smart rural development: the SDGs and the New European Consensus on Development”, organised by the Smart Villages Initiative and the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC). Meet us in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.Minimize

The New European Consensus on Development was proposed in November 2016 and the European Parliament adopted its position in February 2017. On 7 June 2017 at European Development Days, the New Consensus was adopted by the EU Institutions and Member States. This New Consensus will play a central role in how the Sustainable Development Goals are approached via EU and Member State policies.

To this end, Smart Villages and EASAC aim to gather policymakers, civil society, private sector representatives, researchers, scientists and others for a series of presentations and open discussions regarding the direction of the new consensus and SDGs, particularly focusing on people living in rural areas of developing countries that are at the bottom of the pyramid and part of the “last mile”.

The event takes place on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 09:00 AM – 06:00 PM (CEST) in Brussels, Belgium. More information is available here.
