It also addressed current international policy developments such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the several trade negotiations (TTIP and TISA). And strategies for collective action towards sustainable and equal societies were discussed. Parallel to the conference WIDE+ founding General Assembly was held that resulted in a new board, an adopted constitution and founding members.

WIDE+ undersigns statement against regulatory cooperation in TTIP negotiations, February 2015
Regulatory cooperation is the ultimate tool to prevent or weaken future public interest standards for citizens, workers, consumers, and the environment. This is the key message from the statement signed by around 170 civil society organizations on regulatory cooperation in the negotiations on TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a neo-liberal trade agreement) between the EU and the US. The latest leaked European Commission position on the regulatory cooperation chapter of the TTIP negotiations has further heightened the concerns from all CSOs.
