29-30 July 2019 Grazyna Pulawska Sustainable Development & Public Health Department Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) Sustainable Development

Yokohama, Japan

The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) marked a significant turning point in the global development framework. Now, more than ever, international cooperation and strong partnerships will be central to the success of the development agenda. The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) aims to contribute to this global effort by bridging Asian and European perspectives in sustainable development through the Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) Annual Conferences dedicated to specific challenges.

The conference is jointly organised by ASEF and hosted by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), taking place in Yokohama, Japan.

It will gather policy-makers, business representatives and experts from Asia and Europe relevant to the sustainable development goals (SDGs) implementation. In doing so, the conference will provide a space for multi-stakeholder, regional and international dialogue and knowledge sharing important for the success of the 2030 Agenda.

This year, the conference will explore good practices in promoting and implementing SDGs, with a focus on the role of the consumer in triggering sustainable production and consumption (SCP) and SDG12.

This event is by invitation only. If you are interested to get involved, please contact our team at env(at)
