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, innovation, collaboration and action. This annual event unites global sustainability leaders, experts, industry and innovators to inspire action and promote a sustainability transformation. For the first time, the Congress will launch as a hybrid event with a diverse and innovative online program alongside onsite participation. SRI is a joint initiative of Future Earth and the Belmont Forum. This year the Congress will be hosted in Brisbane, Australia between 12-15th of June. There are a variety of competitive scholarship funds for the community to join the congress. Early-career researchers and practitioners and presenters from underrepresented communities are especially encouraged to apply.
