EYD2015 in a nutshell
One •
common •
motto:
Our world,
our dignity,
•
our future

Main focus: informing and
engaging EU citizens
Design and implementation:
at EU level + decentralised to
Member States, civil society and
all interested stakeholders
EU Delegations: invited to promote
EYD in partner countries
Three key objectives

1
Inform Union
citizens about EU
development cooperation
highlighting the results
that the Union, acting
together with the
Member States, has
achieved as a global
actor and will continue to
pursue with the post-2015
framework

2
Foster direct
involvement,
critical thinking
and active interest
of Union citizens
and stakeholders
in development
cooperation
including in policy
formulation
and implementation

of EU development
cooperation – for
beneficiaries and Union

A successful EYD2015 is…
•
All stakeholders are on board and work together:
the EYD2015 is a truly European Year, not only a
EuropeAid or a European Commission Year
•
Indicators show that the three objectives are being
reached: citizens and stakeholders are better informed,
aware of the challenges of an interdependent world and
actively involved
•
EU Delegations and organisations on the ground are on
board promoting the EYD in partner countries and
bringing the stories from the field
