On Wednesday 12/12/2018, the Shift and the FEB organized a round table discussion about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), lead by Her Majesty the Queen, Special UN Advocate for the SDGs, and the Minister of Finance and International Development Alexander De Croo. 

Launching the new call for projects for the new Business Partnership Facility 'Enterprises for SDGs'

Bridging the gap between businesses, NGOs and the academic world both in Europe and developing countries with a view to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals together: that is what the new Business Partnership Facility 'Enterprises for SDGs', a support programme being launched by the Belgian Development Cooperation (DGD) and the King Baudouin Foundation, is all about. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and International Development Alexander De Croo is setting aside total funding worth some €12,000,000 for this purpose over the next five years.
