On 20 January 2006, the EEB organised a conference in Brussels about the Commission’s proposal for a new EU Sustainable Development Strategy and the Thematic Strategy on Sustainable Resource Use. The conference was followed by an NGO brainstorming workshop to discuss several aspects of the EU Sustainable Development Strategy. This report gives a summary of the presentations and discussions of the conference only.

The objectives of the event were: to exchange views with representatives of the European institutions about the new Sustainable Development Strategy, as well as new Thematic Strategy on Resource Use, both published by the European Commission in December 2005; to contribute to the finalisation of a position on the EU Sustainable Development Strategy by the Green 10 (coalition of ten environmental NGOs); to set up a strategy to give input into the discussions in the Ministerial Councils, the European Parliament, and the outcome of the June Summit; to discuss the content of the Thematic Strategy on Sustainable Resource Use, and to prepare and prioritise input for the discussions the European Parliament and the Commission will have on this.
