SDG Conference

Centre for Sustainable Development Studies

CSDS continues its efforts to organize biennial conferences on individual SDGs and their interconnections. These hybrid conferences aim to realize constructive, but also critical reflections on the SDGs, their implementation, and their impacts, involving students, the scholarly community, as well as practitioners. Conferences are thus envisaged in 2021, 2023 and 2025.

  • SDG Conference 2021

    The third Conference on Critical Perspectives on Governance by Sustainable Development Goals took place on the 26th and 27th of January. CSDS would like to thank the more than 1000 participants who tuned in from all over the world, as well as the more than 200 speakers for their invaluable contributions. The various conference outputs, such as the recordings of the plenary sessions, conference music, the videos of the video-pitch contest winners, and more, can be found on this page.
