20160615 EU DEV DAYAnne Claire de Liedekerke (President) , Johanna Schima (Policy officer) and Olalla Michelena (SG at EU delegation) participated at the EU development days which took place in Brussels on 15th and 16th June. It is Europe’s leading forum on international cooperation and development bringing together around 6,000 participants from more than 140 countries, representing the global development community: political leaders, development practitioners, the private sector and civil society. This year’s forum – Sustainable Development Goals in Action: Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future – focused on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the heart of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The aim was to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. We took the opportunity to convey that mothers are an untapped resource which can be used to tackle a number of challenges such as health promotion, peacebuilding, education etc to reach the 2030 sustainable agenda.
