In June 2019, the Commission’s new president Ursula von der Leyen proclaimed her intent to refocus the European Semester into an instrument that integrates the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Together with the Green Deal – with “just transition” as an important condition – and announcements for a strong Social Europe, there seems to be a window of opportunity to refocus the European governance framework on the sustainable development of well-being. AK shows which steps need to be taken to ensure a real refocus and not just more sustainable wording in sub-chapters of the relevant EU documents.
