Stimulate Collaborative Thinking

The European Commission launched a multi-stakeholder platform on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) back in 2017. In 2018 numerous meetings were held resulting in the joint report Europe moving towards a sustainable future – Contribution of the SDG Multi-Stakeholder Platform to the Reflection Paper “Towards a sustainable Europe by 2030”, issued in October 2018. It recognizes the importance of development and implementation of the EU overarching Sustainable Europe 2030 strategy that would guide all EU policies and programmes. Such strategy would support sustainable Europe beyond the 2030 Agenda and encourage EU to play an active role as coordinator and promotor of sustainable development, both in Europe and around the world.

As already defined in our previous report, collaboration is the word of future. Not only that, collaboration is recognized by the P21 Framework for 21st Century Learning as one of the key skills, along with creativity, critical thinking and communication. It is indispensable in the organizations where ability to work effectively and efficiently with others becomes critically important especially in the context of unstoppable digital revolution. It is also critical in resolving some of the most pressing sustainability challenge through mutually inclusive partnerships between business, government, civil society and other actors in order to achieve shared decision-making in problem resolutions.
