About SRI2022: Oceania Satellite Event

Sustainability leaders, experts, industry and innovators from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific are invited to share their knowledge on sustainability challenges and opportunities in the Oceania region in mid-2022 as part of a major international sustainability event.

An Australian consortium of academia and government partners, coordinated by Future Earth Australia, will host the sustainability-focused event in Brisbane on June 29-July 1, 2022.

This event is a satellite event of the Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress 2022 (SRI2022) that will be happening online and in Pretoria, South Africa on 20–24 June.

The Oceania Satellite Event will build on the outcomes of the inaugural SRI2021 Congress last year in Brisbane that featured more than 2000 attendees from over 100 countries. It will focus on sustainability issues and challenges unique to Oceania.

Attendees of the event will learn about the latest sustainability science and innovation, create novel networks and partnerships, explore new ideas, gain visibility, inspire and be inspired, all in a hybrid environment at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.

All participants of the SRI 2022 Oceania Satellite Event will also have full access to the online portion of the SRI2022 Congress, and the cost of this is included in their registration.

Hosting Consortium

The hosting consortium for the Oceania Satellite Event, led by Future Earth Australia and CSIRO, includes the University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, and James Cook University.

This group contains many of the same members as the SRI2021 event held in Brisbane last year, providing them with the experience and insights to hold another successful event.
