Sustainability Research and Innovation 2020

Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency


Future Earth, which supports the largest global community of systems-focused sustainability researchers and innovators, and the Belmont Forum, the world’s largest consortium of transdisciplinary global change and sustainability research funders, are joining forces to establish a marquis congress in which the world’s foremost research and innovation communities come together to share successes, exchange views, and work across disciplines and sectors to support a global transformation to sustainability.

Our first convening will bring together a global community of transdisciplinary research and innovation in an engaging, interactive format, allowing leaders in sustainability innovation to work alongside the world’s leading sustainability scientists, and to engage policy leaders working to support the major international policy processes supporting this transition (Agenda 2030, the UN SDGs, Paris Agreement on climate change, Sendai Framework for Disaster and Risk, Aichi targets). We are committed to the following principles in the development of this major congress series:

  • Sustainable Solutions from the Global South
  • Integrated Action for the SDGs
  • Knowledge-to-Action
  • Sustainability for Whom?
