Eurodad-conference ‘Alternative policies for a sustainable world’



Eurodad's International Conference is co-hosted by Eurodad's Dutch members ActionAid Netherlands, Both ENDS, OIKOS, Oxfam Novib and SOMO. It will be held in the Caballero Fabriek in The Hague.

About the conference
In a world of extreme inequality, widespread poverty, and environmental fragility, the need for alternatives has never been greater. The global economic crisis proved the fragility of both the economic system and the model underpinning it.

Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals are unlikely to be achieved without significant changes to this global economic model and ideas and institutions that sustain it. Elections around the world are proving that there is widespread discontent across the political spectrum, and a willingness to consider radical alternatives.

The event will bring together leading civil society thinkers from around the globe working on issues including debt, tax justice, aid, private finance, the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and global monetary reform to discuss alternative policies for a sustainable world, better ways of financing global development and strengthening global economic regulation and governance.

Programme summary (draft)
The conference will start at 2 pm on Tuesday 20 June with plenary sessions. On Wednesday 21 June there will be mainly workshops. Thursday 22 June will focus on CSO strategies in small working groups.
