Global Sustainable Development Congress 2023

May 30, 2023 @ 8:00 am - June 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Topic: Uniting higher education, governments, industry and society for a sustainable future
Date: 30 May – 1 June 2023
Location: Thuwal, Saudi Arabia

We are thrilled to announce the first speakers for the Global Sustainable Development Congress 2023 at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia from 30 May – 1 June. The congress comes at the pivotal halfway mark between COP 27 in Egypt in 2022 and COP 28 in the United Arab Emirates this November, ensuring we keep the sustainability crisis centre stage in the region. 
As a leading sustainability-focused academic institution in the region, KAUST is dedicated to pioneering new models of liveability and ecological conservation and is proud to host the first GSDC in the Middle East. 

The congress will assess the current (in)action with regard to how the sustainability crisis is being tackled. It will challenge the usual thinking on how higher education, together with the support of governments, business and society, can accelerate progress on the SDGs. And it will provide concrete action plans and practical solutions.

Under the overarching theme of “universities at a time of global crisis”, the agenda features four streams of content addressing the emergency.

• Health and demography
• Energy and industry
• Environment
• Cities and communities
