Join the Belmont Forum for a free, live streamed event bringing together world-leading experts in sustainability science and practice to discuss vital questions around equity, inclusivity, and solidarity.
Global sustainability cannot be realized without achieving sustainability for the most vulnerable and underrepresented communities – many of them in low- and middle-income countries, as well as those increasingly left behind in high-income countries.
Yet the framing of sustainability, investment in innovation, and academic analysis has been dominated by processes that give relatively little regard to and participation from these communities, even when they are about them. This bias matters, because decisions on sustainability include important trade-offs, and processes that lack inclusivity and diversity miss many opportunities arising from the different social, cultural and demographic attributes.
This SRI Talk theme, Sustainability for Whom?, is one of the five Congress Pillars of the Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress 2021 (SRI2021) which will take place June 12-15, 2021, in Brisbane, Australia.
This 60-minute talk will be live streamed through the SRI2021 virtual platform and will include a moderated discussion and live audience Q&A.
