Short description:

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 is believed to reshape the international cooperation in main policy fields. Its core the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) apply in contrast to the former Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) also to the wealthy industrialised countries. They should help to transform all economies towards a socially and environmentally acceptable economy. What is the potential of the SDGs and how could they be implemented on global, regional and national levels? Will they lead to a new, more sophisticated understanding of economic growth?
