Les membres des Nations Unies et d'autres parties prenantes s'impliquent dans la définition de l'Agenda (du Développement Durable) Post-2015.

We present the Sustaineo 2030 scenario in order to explore which governance structures could ensure the mainstreaming of sustainable development as a guiding principle in politics, business and society. Sustaineo is not a parallel universe
in which technology and social systems have been invented entirely anew. On the contrary; it is based on actual experiences in real situations that have been examined as part of a global study and presented in the form of a narrative.
