Policy and science: joining forces for a sustainable future

Dialog 2030 meets Sustainabilty Science Forum

Fabrikstrasse 12

How should and can science participate in shaping a sustainable future? What form can effective cooperation between politics, administration and science take in order to achieve the SDGs, and to what extent should the roles of these actors interlock?

The event will explore these and other questions. It combines the "Dialogue 2030" of the Federal Office for Spatial Development (ARE) with the "Sustainability Science Forum" of the Initiative for Sustainability Research of SCNAT.

The Dialogue 2030 facilitates the exchange between relevant stakeholders and thus promotes a coordinated and effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Switzerland.

The Sustainability Science Forum is a meeting place for the growing community of sustainable development research - where new ideas are discussed, research concepts developed and partnerships forged.
