The theme for SDG Conference in Bergen 2024 is The role of universities in transformative change

The climate and nature crises indicate a code red for humanity. There is a huge gap between political leadership, knowledge, resources and technology. This reflects an urgent need for transformative change. How can universities and the academic professions engage in these changes in new and more radical ways?

We are delighted to invite you to the 7th annual SDG Conference. This digital conference brings together participants from around the world and will include speakers from academia, government, innovation hubs, industry, and more.
