Progress with Roots

In the last thirty years, the Basque Country has transformed itself from an economic backwater under Spanish dictatorship to a pioneer in sustainable human development. How did they do it?

“The economic growth is unequal. We must seek for ethical, balanced and sustainable growth”

The Basque Country advances toward Human Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In the last three years, the Basque Government, the social entities and the companies have given serious commitment on the fulfilment and implementation of the SDG although, according to what Txabi Anuzita - Head of International Relations at UNESCO Etxea- spoke at the first ALC Conferences on Sustainable Development “it is a long- distance race with a series of difficult hurdles”. The international expert also emphasized the world´s “economic inequality” and stressed the need for the promotion of “ethical, balanced and sustainable growth”.
