In the framework of the German Presidency of the Council of the EU, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is hosting the “European Forum on Science & Education for Sustainability” (#EFSES2020), an online conference which will take place on the 6th of October 2020.

The aim of this high-level conference is to develop concrete suggestions on how to shape an Innovative and Sustainable Europe through research and education. Climate change, social inequality, education for sustainable development and the circular economy will be some of the key topics discussed.

“The future is open. This is made remarkably clear by the coronavirus pandemic and the big challenges of our time such as climate change and social inequality. It is therefore more important than ever for us Europeans to act and shape our future together. Only joint action will allow us to build a strong, green and fair Europe. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defines ambitious goals (the SDGs) for our European future. Numerous initiatives of the Member States and the European Commission, including the European Green Deal, allow us to turn these goals into great opportunities for Europe. The Forum is expected to deliver concrete proposals on how education and research can provide fresh impetus for a sustainable Europe. One area of focus will be the European programmes Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ and topics such as climate change, the circular economy, social inequality and education for sustainable development.”
