Impact Symposium 2022

Adapting Research Culture to Achieve the SDGs

Adapting Research Culture to Achieve the SDGs

What

A unique Symposium focusing on impact and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), hosted each Autumn since 2020. The 2022 edition looks at how we can adapt research culture in order to better achieve the goals, as 2030 approaches and progress seems slower than ever.

Who

A host of inspirational speakers drawn from across the globe, from the UN Global Compact and the UN SDSN through academia and research institutes, and from the feet on the ground to those making decisions at the organisation-wide level.

Why

The world is facing interlinked & worsening crises; research is critical to delivering solutions, but culture can hinder rather than help efforts towards achieving a sustainable future. The event explores international perspectives on how we can catalyse a better tomorrow by adapting today.
