Entrance is free, and there will be opportunities for local workshop hubs to engage in person pending COVID-19 local restrictions.  

Day Zero will be hosted on a digital conference platform to give us the opportunity for networking to meet new people engaged with the SDGs. We will also host an all-digital virtual cocktail hour at the end of the event, “on top” of Mount Fløyen in Bergen. More details will come soon. Day Zero remains free for all participants. 

Submit abstract for your event for Day Zero 2021

As before, Day Zero will have an Opening Plenary Session, followed by three waves of 90-minute workshop sessions. For our all-digital event in 2021, there are two modes of hosting a Day Zero workshop: 

  1. Hybrid Mode The first mode for designing/hosting your workshop is at a physical location in a normal form only that it is live streamed so that audience members can use their video and microphone to interact with the physical-based Day Zero workshop.  

  1. Digital Mode The second mode of designing/hosting a Day Zero workshop is the pure digital mode where the moderator and any panel members or speakers and participants are all joined in a “Session” on the Day Zero web-based platform. Audience members/remote participants will have the opportunity to use their video camera and microphone like a normal video conference meeting.
