Join global changemakers in
The top sustainability science and innovation event of 2024 is a collaboration between the Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress (SRI), and Finland’s Sustainability Science Days (SSD).
With a shared mission to achieve a knowledge-based sustainability transformation, the two leading sustainability science events are coming together this June.
The week-long event, SRI/SSD2024, will bring together 2000+ participants from more than 100 countries online and in-person to both Aalto University in Espoo and University of Helsinki in Finland.
SRI/SSD2024 will bring together 2000+ participants from more than 100 countries online and in-person with events on both campuses in Helsinki and Espoo
Join 2000+ participants from more than 100 countries:
1. Green Transitions
This theme provides an opportunity to explore the changing landscape and attitudes towards living in harmony with nature.
2. Transforming Technologies and the Future of Work
This theme highlights both the technological advances that hope to improve our world and the systems that foster, support, and consume the realization of those technological applications.
3. Living on the Frontlines of Change – The Arctic and Beyond
This theme invites contributions about the polycrises facing many communities, the considerations and challenges to adapting in place, and pathways forward for minimizing conflict, increasing community and personal resilience, and ensuring safe, healthy, productive, and fulfilling living conditions for future generations.
4. Powering the World
Transitions to renewable and clean energy sources offer only a near-term option to reduce dependency on hydrocarbon and coal-based fuels until transformative alternatives would potentially become available. This shift, whether in the form of wind, solar, geothermal, wave, or other energy sources, presents several systemic opportunities but also challenges beyond just progressive technological advancements.
