About SRI2022

The Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress 2022 (SRI2022) is a transdisciplinary gathering in sustainability – a space of dynamic advocacy for sustainability scholarship, innovation, collaboration, and action. This is an annual series that unites global leaders, experts, industry, practitioners, and innovators to inspire action and promote transformation in sustainability.

A collaboration of the Belmont Forum and Future Earth, SRI is a unique opportunity for diverse audiences to connect with the global sustainability community, learn and contribute to the latest sustainability science, create novel networks and partnerships, explore new ideas, gain visibility, inspire, and be inspired.

SRI2022 builds on the success of SRI2021 – the first SRI Congress – which was organized in Brisbane, Australia, and online in June 2021. This inaugural Congress brought together over 2000 participants from more than 100 countries, and was fully recorded. All SRI2021 session recordings are now open access and available here.

SRI2022 is hosted by Future Africa at the University of Pretoria.
