The ESDN Conference 2012 took place in Copenhagen, Denmark on 28-29 June 2012 and was organized by the ESDN in cooperation with the Danish EU Presidency.
The ESDN Conference 2012 was entitled “Rio+20 and its implications for Sustainable Development Policy at the EU and national level”. Taking place shortly after the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, the ESDN Conference 2012 provided a platform to reflect on the results of Rio+20 and to discuss their implications on content and SD governance for the different political levels. Moreover, the ESDN Steering Group will, together with the conference participants, develop recommendations for implementing the Rio+20 results in practice.
