On 9 January, the European Year for Development (EYD) was launched in Riga, Latvia. Under the motto « Our world, our dignity, our future », 2015 will become a special year, in which the development cooperation of the EU and its Member States will be presented to the European public.

During the European Year for Development, the EU Member States will organize many outreach activities for the general public, and more particularly for young people.

To showcase the work of the development actors, stories related to a theme will be published each month on the official website of the European Year for Development. « Europe in the World» is the theme chosen for the month of January.

Several outreach activities will be organized throughout the year by the different actors of the Belgian Development Cooperation, including by BIO.
