Sustainability Research and Innovation 2021 Congress




The Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress 2021 (SRI2021) is the world’s first transdisciplinary gathering in sustainability – it will be a space of fierce advocacy for sustainability scholarship and innovation, collaboration and action. It is the first in an annual series that unites global leaders, experts, industry and innovators to inspire action and promote a transformation in sustainability. 

SRI2021 will be a unique opportunity for diverse audiences to connect with the global sustainability community, learn about the latest sustainability science, create novel networks and partnerships, explore new ideas, gain visibility, inspire and be inspired. 

The Congress will launch as a hybrid event with a diverse and innovative online program alongside onsite participation in Brisbane.

Registration is now open! All online registrations can be upgraded to an on-site ticket at early bird price any time up to 12 June 2021. 

Brisbane was chosen as the host city for its unique mixture of world-class sustainability scholarship, green innovation, cross-sectoral engagement, and inclusive dialogue. Australia, who hosts the Congress in 2021, plays a unique role in the global community as a conduit between the Global North and the Global South, and indigenous peoples and traditional sustainability practices. 

The local hosting consortium features academia, government, and private sector partners from Brisbane and the State of Queensland to meet the breadth of the SRI2021 agenda. Its location, just a few hours from the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Dividing Range, and Queensland’s Outback, makes Brisbane a central point for exploring Australia’s unique and diverse ecosystems.
