Localizing the SDGs 2.0. – Voluntary Local Reviews and the EU Voluntary Review  

​​2023 will be the year of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially in the EU with the first ever EU Voluntary Review and 9 Member states tabling Voluntary National Reviews. The EU Review will be fundamental to show whether the EU walks the talk and can encourage other UN countries to get back on track to implement the SDGs by 2030. Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) by EU municipalities will also have a key role in showing the full extent of the EU mobilisation on SDGs.

The event co-organised be the European Committee of the Regions and the Ministry for Environment, Conservation and Transport of North Rhine Westphalia will shed light on how all levels of government can work together to implement SDGs with the presentation of the German project: “Communities in one world” of the Service Agency of Communities in one World, a project on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and first implemented in North Rhine Westphalia to help cities localize SDGs and make VLRs.

Mayor of Bonn, Katja Dorner, and Mayor of Gent, Mathias De Clercq, will also present their Voluntary Local Reviews. These two testimonials will be followed by an EU Panel debate with the European Commission Secretariat General, representatives of the local level and academia on what to expect from the EU Voluntary Review and how to build bridges between the EU VR and VLRs.
