World Symposium of Sustainable Development Centers
June 28 - June 30
Over the past 20 years, efforts to implement sustainable development across a wide range of subjects and disciplines, and by means of research projects, events and practical initiatives, have been driven by centres devoted to this topic. Regardless of their formal title, many sustainable development centers have been playing a key role in fostering the case of sustainable development. But despite the importance of their work, sustainable development centers often operate in an isolated manner, with few opportunities being provided to them to meet, discuss common interest and seek synergies. Yet, much could be gained if centers working on matters related to sustainable in both industrialised and developing nations, could come together.
This event aims to to provide an opportunity for sustainable development centres from across the world to present their work, studies they are understanding, as well as research and practical projects which may contribute to the implementation of sustainable development as a whole, and the UN SDGs in particular, and in pursuing sustainable future scenarios;and to identify, document and disseminate ideas, experiences and visions from science managers and educators, on how to foster the cause of sustainable development in a more systematic way.
