Science for a Sustainable Future

By Springer Nature, Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and TReNDS

The world is facing a multitude of crises and as COVID-19 has spread, it has underscored how interconnected our world is and the importance of science in ensuring a sustainable future. Tackling each of these crises requires scientific knowledge and expertise for diagnosing challenges and developing solutions. Stronger international cooperation and greater collaboration between policymakers and scientists are needed to mobilize science to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in every country. 

On October 8 2020, Springer Nature and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) with its Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics (TReNDS) will host a three hour virtual conference on science for a sustainable future. This global virtual conference will bring together policymakers, government representatives, UN officials, as well as leading scientists from around the world to discuss the role of science in achieving the SDGs.
