On 27th September 2018 the CBSS Latvian Presidency hosted the 19th meeting of the Expert Group on Sustainable Development (EGSD) – Baltic 2030 at the premises of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development in Riga. The main point of discussion was the mandate and the future of the Expert Group in line with the overall objectives of the CBSS and the implementation of the Baltic 2030 Action Plan. The Latvian Youth Council (LJP) and representation of the “ReGeneration 2030” participated in the meeting contributing to the discussions about the EGSD’s future, and gave suggestions on how to support youth engagement in the implementation of the SDGs. Latvia gave insight into the UN High Level Political Forum 2018, where the country presented for the first time the Voluntary National Review of the 2030 Agenda, and organized - in collaboration with Estonia and Slovenia - the side event “Promoting the circular economy to achieve SDG12”.
