SDG Watch Europe is supporting national civil society organisations from different sectors to come together and collaborate more effectively on the monitoring of the correct implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Since the first national exchange organised in February 2017, the need to have a better picture on how the civil society is organized in the different countries became clearer than ever.
Following an online assessment tool sent to well-established cross sectorial coalitions and informal alliances across Europe and further exchanges on peer learning, SDG Watch Europe has developed this map presenting how civil society organises at the national level around the SDGs.
While the level of consolidation and building processes of these coalitions and alliances are very different, most of them have already achieved relevant results in terms of advocacy and awareness-raising activities. Through events, position papers and articles, civil society organisations expressed their views and held governments accountable for what they promised at the United Nations in 2015.
At the same time, informing public opinion about sustainable development challenges and opportunities and reinforcing the capacities of the different stakeholders is a role all these dynamics from civil society organisations are playing.
The aim of visualising all this work through a simple map is to show this valuable and innovative social tissue that is key for pushing the transformational issues content in the Agenda 2030.
All these coalitions and alliances bring together organisations from very different backgrounds to work for the same 17 common goals so that they can have a stronger voice.
