Founding of SDG Watch Austria

In January 2017, 144 organisations addressed the government in an open letter calling for the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and its SDGs. In the letter, the organisations demanded a transparent and inclusive participation process, a gap analysis and the development of an overarching sustainability strategy based on the SDGs.

On 27 September 2017, more than 80 civil society organisations from various sectors came together to support the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and the SDGs and, thus, founded SDG Watch Austria. Just one month afterwards, more than 100 organisations from all over Austria became members of the network and at the first general assembly of SDG Watch Austria in May 2017, more than 130 organisations were part of SDG Watch Austria.
