The Conference theme is: “Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education”.
This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and analytical approaches.
The 2017 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science.
This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.
Turbulent times call for smart, decisive action. Some call it joining the resistance, we call it getting the job done, wherever it is. When committed women and girls gather with a common vision, the wheels of disruption are set in motion. #WomenFunded2017 is one of those spaces. Join us in this non-solicitation zone, a safe space for funders and leaders in the women’s movement to find common ground.
Knowledge is power. But it doesn’t have to be boring. Instead you will experience the knowledge, skills and resources offered in multiple ways. After two and a half days of interactive workshops, labs and plenaries on digital strategies, global/local advocacy, organizing and more, you’ll leave with the #powertools you’ll need take care of business when you get home.
If you care about equity, if you care about women and girls #WomenFunded2017 is for you. If you are ready to eradicate discrimination in all its forms, #WomenFunded2017 is for you. You’ll join more than 350 women leaders from women’s foundations and non-profits, along with corporate foundation leaders, senior business and tech execs and issue experts. This is our time to motivate and mobilize for the change we seek, to be the change.
