The congress aims to achieve a strong turnout of participants, appeal to the scientific community, and to spark a broader conversation about sustainability. The congress is expected to attract 800 participants with representatives from academia, private enterprise, policy makers and media.
The congress is organized by the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) through a Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and a Local Organizing Committee (LOC):
The Scientific Steering Committee is chaired by Professor Katherine Richardson from the Sustainability Science Centre, University of Copenhagen.
