Being able to effectively tackle sustainable development/environmental/climate change issues depend on the specific laws and policies adopted in those areas, as well as how these issues are addressed within the overall political priorities and economic policies as well as through horizontal principles, rules and procedures; procedural instruments play a crucial role in supporting more transparent, rational decision-making processes related to the EASD focus thematic issues.
EASD focus thematic issues are: — Sustainable Development Goals; – Education for sustainable development; – Sustainable Production and Consumption; – Science (Research and Citizen science and science promotion); – Nature and biodiversity; – Waste and chemicals, and – other working areas (Climate change issues, Sustainable tourism, Sustainable fashion and textile, Policy and governance, Resource efficiency, Circular economy, Water and sanitation, Air pollution, Eco-labeling, Energy-Environment nexus, Environmental rights and justice and security, EU accession and enlargement, Gender issues, Culture and art, Food and nutrition). Environmental Ambassadors for Sustainable Development (Environmental Ambassadors, EASD) is a non-for-profit professional association working through the consultancy, expertise, innovation, capacity building, evidence-based advocacy, promotion of natural and culture values, global equality and environmental/climate justice.
