With the first Swiss Sustainability Science Forum, SCNAT is creating a regular annual or biennial gathering. It invites the Swiss sustainability science community to come together and exchange on burning sustainability questions.

The Sustainability Science Forum 2021 will start with a keynote by Thomas Vellacott, CEO WWF Switzerland followed by an update on the SRI's work on priorities for sustainability research. A number of parallel sessions and networking opportunities will serve to identify and further develop ideas on concrete future research needs and on how science can best support the transformation to sustainability.

The detailed programme will be available shortly on this website.
