Event date and time

Saturday 12 - Tuesday 15 Jun 2021


Online and onsite in Brisbane, Australia

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, and collaboration.

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 an online event with a diverse and innovative program. In addition to the 100+ sessions available throughout the day and night, thanks to the global reach of SRI and partners, the SRI2021 Online Package includes exclusive events and services, including training, workshops and high-level talks.

SRI is a joint initiative of Future Earth and the Belmont Forum. Australia, which hosts the Congress in 2021, has a unique role to play in the global community as a conduit between the Global North and the Global South, indigenous peoples and traditional sustainability practices. The local hosting consortium, led by Future Earth Australia and CSIRO, features academia and government partners from Brisbane and the State of Queensland to meet the breadth of the SRI2021 agenda.

SRI2021 offers a range of opportunities to gather in-person in Brisbane, Australia. This is a great opportunity to escape the world of Zoom calls and meet your next project partner, collaborator, colleague or mentor.

To coincide with SRI2021, the Queensland Museum will host a community event, Sustainability and Science Showcase, in Brisbane to highlight the latest science and sustainability tips for Queenslanders.

CSIRO Land and Water Science Director, Dr Paul Bertsch, will present at the showcase along with a list of eco experts.
