The Hellenic Platform for Development, an umbrella-organization that operates as a “national platform,” leads a network of Greek Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) active in the fields of sustainable development education, humanitarian aid, global citizenship action and developmental social support. Its current members are supported by a large segment of the Greek society and offer their programs nationwide as well as in many developing countries. It also represents Greek NGOs in CONCORD.

The main objective of the Hellenic Platform is to influence -through the joint action of its members- policy makers in Greece, in the EU and internationally, for the improvement of policies and practices for sustainable development. It also aims to provide education, development of skills, training and sharing of information among Greek NGOs regarding Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
