The Sustainable Research and Innovation Congress will this year be held between 22-24 June 2022, online and onsite in Pretoria, South Africa.
Notably, the Sustainability Research & Innovation (SRI) Congress is the world’s largest transdisciplinary gathering for the global sustainability community.
SRI unites more than 2000 global sustainability research leaders, government and civil society experts, funders and innovators to inspire action and promote a sustainability transformation.
A joint initiative of Future Earth and the Belmont Forum, this truly global, annual event sparks meaningful conversations, provides a platform to share innovative ideas, and creates an inspiring and inclusive space for collaboration and action.
This year, SRI will double in size. Hosted by the Future Africa Institute in Pretoria, South Africa, and online, the second edition of SRI, SRI2022, will offer a program of over 200 interactive sessions, workshops, trainings, networking events, innovation demonstrations, satellite events, and much more. The full program is available here.
The National Research Foundation (NRF) was recently selected to host the Future Earth Africa Global Secretariat Hub Africa. The Africa Hub will join eight global secretariat hubs, namely: Canada, China, France, Japan, South Asia, Sweden, Taipei, and the United States.
This landmark hosting will no doubt be a key driver in Africa's voice in sustainability and will be a promising collaborator for the SDSN Africa network.
