European Union celebrates 2015 as the European Year for Development (EYD2015). Using the motto “our world, our dignity, our future”, EYD2015 aims at informing EU’s citizens on the development cooperation of the EU and Member States, to encourage direct involvement, critical thinking and active interest of citizens and other stakeholders in Europe towards development cooperation as well as raise awareness towards the advantages of development cooperation not only for the beneficiaries of development assistance but also for EU’s citizens.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania together with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) coordinate and implement a National Work Plan for EYD2015. The plan includes several events which aim at raising awareness among various audiences such as youth, media, students, civils society and the academia on development issues. By efficiently communicating the difficulties and achievements of people in developing countries, the Work Plan contributes towards raising the awareness and knowledge on development and international cooperation of Romanian citizens and their involvement in supporting global development.
The final narrative report of the EYD2015 National Work Plan is available here.
