WHY DO WE HOLD A UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS STARTUP EUROPE AWARDS?
Thanks to the contribution made by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which expired in 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been created to continue its path. It now addresses both poverty eradication and the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development in a balanced and integrated manner as well as issues like effective institutions, good governance, the rule of law and peaceful societies.
The EU has played an important role in shaping the 2030 Agenda, through public consultations, dialogue with our partners and in-depth research and will maintain its leading role in the implementation process.
The EU will continue to play a leading role as we move into the implementation of this ambitious, transformative and universal Agenda that delivers poverty eradication and sustainable development for all.
SMEs always play a vital role in development as they always come out with innovative ideas or solutions, as well as improving the financial situation. For this reason, we seek to recognize the best startups helping to achieve the UN, the EU and the world develop in the most sustainable manner.
