European Sustainability Berlin 07 (ESB07) - Linking Policies, Implementation, and Civil Society Action. Berlin, 3-5 June, 2007
The ESDN Conference 2007 was hosted by the German Council for SD (RNE) as the main sustainability event in the context of the German EU Presidency on 3-5 June in Berlin. The two major topics of the Conference were (a) linking politics and administration and (b) stimulating informed debate in civil society. The two topics were subject to several keynote and dinner speeches, in-depth working group discussions and a sounding panel that consisted of two parliamentarians, one administrator and one civil society representative. Additionally, issues related to the EU SDS (peer reviewing and reporting) were discussed by two panels. Finally, all participants discussed how to develop the ESDN further at the end of the event.
