On 20 December, the Commission will organise a conference in Brussels on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) with several high level speakers. This event will be opened by Frans Timmermans, First Vice-President of the European Commission for Better Regulation, Interinstitutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights, and closed by Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President of the European Commission for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness.

The EU has been instrumental in shaping the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted at the 70th UN General Assembly in September 2015 and has now become the world's blueprint for global sustainable development.

The 2030 agenda, composed of 17 SDGs and 169 associated targets, represents a commitment to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development by 2030 worldwide.
