FOR A SUSTAINABLE VISEGRAD GROUP
V4SDG IS CHANGING, STAY TUNED
On 24 June 2021, V4SDG introduced its “V4 Vision for sustainability – for a stronger region built on sustainability cooperation” within the framework of the event titled “Cooperation for Sustainability – A new purpose for the V4″. As the Visegrad Declaration has turned 30 this year, the call for action in the region is as timely as ever.
Laying down the foundations for a fruitful discussion, 4 closed-expert consultations on the topics of innovation & education, cooperation infrastructure, ecosystem protection, and cooperation infrastructure took place before the event.

VISEGRAD FOR SUSTAINABILITY
V4SDG is A COLLECTIVE OF YOUNG PROFESSIONALS TRANSFORMING SUSTAINABILITY AFFAIRS IN CENTRAL EASTERN EUROPE.
OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO strengthen COOPERATION. WE CONNECT, ANALYSE, EXCHANGE AND ADVOCATE TO ACHIEVE THAT.
In 2015, the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as an ambitious plan to fix what is wrong with our planet until the year 2030. Achieving the goals is not negotiable. It is the main way to address the challenges of climate change, growing inequalities and the fourth industrial revolution together.
Visegrad for Sustainability or V4SDG was created to become the organisation that paves the way towards the achievement of the SDGs in Central Eastern Europe. Our founders, four young professionals, realised that the region's sustainability actors are not connected enough, especially across sectors, and are not well-integrated into the global mainstream of sustainability affairs.
By addressing these two issues, we can make the development of sustainability solutions easier and create a pipeline for their global application. Essentially, we are strengthening cooperation on sustainability to make it our region's greatest innovation and development opportunity in history.
Established in 2018, we have grown into a non-profit organisation of over 30 young professionals working on these objectives. We are starting with the Visegrad Countries but will soon expand to the rest of Central Eastern Europe.
