14. Why is the project taking place?The world is facing an unprecedented number of crises, which require cooperation, transformation, and social and technological innovation. The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the related Paris Agreement adopted in 2015 are multilateral agreements of historic importance. They are the two guiding documents of a universal nature that provide concrete targets and steps to address these crises, and to shift towards new pathways of inclusive, low-carbon, human rights based development. The universal and integrated approach of Agenda 2030 urges for political change on the local, national and international level, as well as an active participation of the civil society organisations and public legitimisation. Cooperation amongst CSOs has become more important than ever. Sense of ownership of the SDGs and its successful implementation requires ongoing participation at the national and local level of all sectors of European civil society, in particular working in cross-sectoral CSO coalitions. In order to successfully put pressure on governments to implement the SDGs, it is crucial to make it relevant in the public debates. It is key to work towards the transformation of the current lifestyles of EU citizens, which with their cumulative and excessive global ecological and social footprint contribute to the crises.
