The international NTNU Sustainability Science Conference

To reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement, the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, environmental and social – must be considered holistically. NTNU Sustainability hosts the conference on October 18th - 20th, as a platform to share evidence-based research for sustainable decision-making. Strategies must be scientifically based and provide the foundation for practical innovation and implementation.
