solutions for a more
sustainable Europe
About us

Think 2030 is a multi-stakeholder platform providing science-based ideas and solutions for a sound implementation of the European Green Deal, in line with the SDGs.

Launched by IEEP and its partners in 2018, Think2030 is an evidence-based, non-partisan platform of leading policy experts from European think tanks, civil society, the private sector and local authorities. By focusing on producing relevant, timely and concrete policy recommendations, Think2030’s key objective is to identify science-policy solutions for a more sustainable Europe.

The platform meets every two years for a high-level conference, with side events before and after. The conference usually takes place in the country of the rotating EU Council Presidency, with the support of the Think Sustainable Europe member based in that country.

Science-policy solutions
for a more sustainable Europe


Today, Think2030 is engaging key decision-makers with a common goal to increase their ambition on Green Deal implementation at the EU and national level. The European Green Deal Barometer survey report, launched in 2021, identifies the challenges to the Green Deal implementation and provides policy recommendations for addressing them. The new edition will be published in the summer of 2022. This publication builds on an EU-wide consultation of sustainability experts in governments, NGOs, academia, research institutes and the private sector.
