    Mission Statement

    SDG Watch Europe is a broad, cross-sectoral, civil society alliance which aims to ensure that the EU and
    its Member States meet all of the Sustainable Development Goals and targets, within Europe and

    In order to realise the overall mission of SDG Watch Europe, member organisations agree to:

    (I) Work cross-sectorally with other civil society organisations and stake-holders to ensure the
    implementation of this ambitious global agenda.

    (II) Develop and strengthen the work of SDG Watch Europe so that it becomes an important EU
    interlocutor for governments and other stakeholders.

    (III) Advocate for inclusive and participatory structures and mechanisms at EU & MS levels to
    ensure full and effective SDG implementation ,within the EU and externally,

    (IV) Work to ensure that the commitments to “leave no one behind” and to respect planetary
    boundaries made by the EU and its MS when adopting the SDG framework are fully respected.

    (V) Advocate for the policies required to fully implement the SDGs in EU internal and external
    action , raise awareness of goals and targets amongst the general public, monitor and review
    EU & MS progress on SDG implementation, and push for action where needed.

    (VI) Promote a critical shift away from the current unsustainable development model, focused
    almost exclusively on the market and economic growth, and target the European Union as a
    crucial actor to bring about this change, acting within its own borders and globally.

    (VII) Promote a Human Rights Based Approach in all of the policy, advocacy and campaign work
    of SDG Watch Europe.

    (VIII) Advocate for Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development and for the four dimensions of
    sustainable development (environmental, social, economic and governance) to be reflected in
    SDG implementation by the EU and its MS.

    (IX) Identify and communicate the needs of civil society to the EU and to relevant international
    institutions, and work to promote civil society space and fight shrinking space of civil society in
    many countries in Europe and globally.

    (X) Work within the SDG framework to ensure that governments and the private sector are held
    to account to a much greater extent.

    (XI) Maintain the highest standards of transparency and integrity in the governance and overall
    functioning of SDG Watch Europe
