Register: International Conference on Sustainable Development 2016
Description: The aim of the conference is to identify and share practical, evidence-based solutions that can support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The ICSD provides a unique opportunity to bring together stakeholders from government, academia, the United Nations, international agencies, NGOs, and grassroots organizers to share practical solutions towards the achievement of more sustainable and inclusive societies.
Professor Jeffrey Sachs says it best:
This year’s International Conference on Sustainable Development will be the most important and historic yet! Not only will the science and policy be at the cutting edge; the conference will take place on the eve of the historic UN Summit on Sustainable Development, when the Sustainable Development Goals will be adopted. ICSD will host students from around the world, top scientists, and world leaders from politics to government to the UN. I urge everybody interested in sustainable development — the great challenge of our age — to come to ICSD. Alas, space is limited, but we’ll pack in all that we can!
