The campaign “Change your Shoes” is part of the European Year for Development 2015 with the motto ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’. 2015 is a special year for development. The EU is an important player in protecting workers and consumers from hazardous products and in encouraging ethical and sustainable shoe supply chains. It is the first ever European Year to deal with the European Union’s external actions and Europe’s role in the world. It is the opportunity to show Europe’s commitment to eradicating poverty worldwide and to inspire more Europeans to get engaged and involved in development.
