Europe's sustainable development strategy, Research for a better future

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


Sustainable development is a deep-seated value of the European Union and encompasses issues of enormous importance to citizens, whether it be maintaining and increasing long-term prosperity, addressing climate change or working towards a sale, healthy and socially inclusive society. As we face increasingly rapid global changes, from the melting of the icecaps to growing energy demand and higher prices, the need to address unsustainable trends and to change our behaviour and attitudes is more pressing than ever. The EU's Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) aims to bring about a high level of environmental protection, social equity and cohesion, economic prosperity and active promotion of sustainable development worldwide. The 2005 Strategy focuses its actions on the key challenges of climate change and clean energy; public health; social inclusion, demography and migration; management of natural resources; sustainable transport and global poverty and development.
