The Inter-Institutional Group represents the desire of the civil society to contribute to the SDGs and the Green New Deal, aiming to discuss and raise awareness on how the individual can give her/his contribution. In fact, we strongly believe that citizen and consumer empowerment should be the pillar of the transition towards a more inclusive and sustainable Europe.
The idea to encourage an informal Inter-Institutional Group able to interconnect the goals of the Agenda 2030 with the consumer protection was announced by Cittadinanzattiva and the European Consumer Union on March 2019 during the event, held at the European Parliament, “Towards EU election: strengthening the European Union to a more effective consumers protection”. Later on, just after the 2019 European elections, Active Citizenship Network (ACN) - the EU branch of the NGO Cittadinanzattiva –and the European umbrella association European Consumers Union (ECU) have invited the civil society coalition Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) to co-promote this political initiative.
