8th World Sustainability Forum (WSF2020)

NRP 74 is a cooperation partner of the WSF2020. WSF2020 contributes to building a worldwide platform and network for a sustainability agenda that fosters partnerships beyond the boundaries of academic disciplines and national agendas.

Sustainability has gained considerable traction globally: many countries have integrated sustainability and environmental protection as part of their national agenda, many businesses have realized the long-term potential in sustainable development, and research agendas have aligned with sustainability goals.

All UN Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.

It is now time for the research, policy, and business communities to enter into dialog and to embrace greater global responsibilities. The quest is to conceive ways to ensure long-term sustainable development for our people, our planet, as well as societal and corporate profit.

The WSF2020 will be coordinated by MDPI*, the MDPI Sustainability Foundation, the UN Global Compact, the Global Footprint Network, and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
