German Sustainability Science Summit 2021
Welcome to the German Sustainability Science Summit 2021 that will take place as an interactive virtual online event on 8 & 9 July 2021. The summit continues the bi-annual series of the German Future Earth Summits organised by the German Committee Future Earth (Deutsches Komitee für Nachhaltigkeitsforschung, DKN).
The summit will provide a platform for exchange on the latest scientific findings in the field of sustainability research. It will cover a range of topics from normativity, epistemology and attainability of sustainable development over extreme events, resilience, social cohesion and well-being to climate change, biodiversity, diet and health.
Besides scientific sessions with presentations and discussions, panel discussions, an interactive poster session and other interactive formats will provide room for exchange, discussion and networking across the international science community working on sustainability related topics - within and across disciplines.
Participation in the Summit will be free of charge.
For the Call for Contributions and the Registration you will be forwarded to a website hosted by the con gressa GmbH. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon is not responsible for the data processing practices when accessing this website.
Prior to the German Sustainability Science Summit 2021 three German Future Earth Summits have taken place within the bi-annual summit series organised by the German Committee Future Earth (Deutsches Komitee für Nachhaltigkeitsforschung, DKN).
The bi-annual "German Future Earth Summits" contributed to the networking among the sustainability research community in Germany and beyond. They brought together each more than 200 visitors from many disciplines and sectors.
While new societally relevant topics were discussed at the first summit (2014), the second summit (2016) focused on cross-disciplinary and cross-sectional issues with a stronger focus on science. The third summit (2018) took the adoption of the "Sustainable Development Goals" and the “Paris Agreement on Climate Protection” as well as the establishment of the Future Earth Knowledge Action Networks (KANs) as an opportunity to focus on the role of science in the production of solution-oriented knowledge.
