Abstract: Good governance and sustainable development are key to consolidating a sustainable and efficient future. Based on the challenges they have faced over time, both the European Union and the UN have implemented the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, hoping for a full integration of the proposed objectives into public policy. This study has a theoretical approach focusing on the gradual historical evolution of these two concepts underlying once more their importance for the new social reality.

Keywords: Good governance; sustainable development, citizens, multi-level governance.
