European Year for Development 2015

The year 2015 is designated as a „European Year for Development under the motto "Our world, our dignity, our future".

Topic for the European Year has been chosen with the objective of raising awareness of the current orientation of European Union development policy with the respect to global sustainability and interdependence.

The organization of this initiative enjoys a strong widespread inter-institutional support, in particular European Parliament support.

Development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs stated that the European Year will provide "an unparalleled opportunity for us to engage with EU citizens, to showcase our strong commitment to eradicating poverty worldwide and to inform them how every euro of support helps to make a difference in the lives of so many, in some of the world’s poorest countries."
