On September 2015, world leaders committed to achieve, by 2030, an inclusive development model where no one is left behind and planetary boundaries are respected by adopting the2030 Agenda for Sustainable development and its seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Following its adoption, the European Union engaged itself to a transformative agenda, which could potentially turn the current unsustainable ‘growth-at-any-cost’ economic model into a sustainable one based on the clear supremacy of human rights over the economic privileges of vested interest groups. Nevertheless, more than a year after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, the EU has still to develop an overarching implementation strategy with a 2030 timeline. While the Europe Commission should lead in developing such a strategy accompanied by an implementation plan, it should also take concrete policy and legislative measures to implement the 2030 Agenda in its external and internal policies.

Against this background, the Progressive Lab for Sustainable Development (PLSD) – a joint initiative of the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists & Democrats in the European Parliament (S&D) and SOLIDAR – has brought together young researchers, experts and policy-makers to think about the concrete steps that the EU can take to move towards Sustainable Development. The result of this process is the Progressive Lab for Sustainable Development Book that was launched on 8 June 2017 at the European Parliament.
