big-ukssd-conf

 

The annual conference of the UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD) will take place in London (ICAEW, Chartered Accountants’ Hall, Moorgate Place, London EC2R 6EA) on 1 March 2017 from 08:30 to 17:00.

 

Under the theme ‘Unlocking the UK’s potential: from ambition to transformation,’ the conference will explore how to translate the ambition of the 17 Goals and 169 Targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into transformational action for the UK.

 

Hosted by The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the event will bring together academics, businesses, NGOs, professionals, government and public under one banner: transformational action on SDGs for the UK.

 

The day’s programme comprises a main programme in Grand Hall and a sub programme (at selected times) of parallel sessions in Council Chamber and Breakout Spaces. The event will feature keynotes and a variety of sessions ranging from plenaries, presentations, drop-in surgeries and breakout spaces delivered by UKSSD partners.

 

Main programme (Grand Hall)

 

The proceedings will start with a welcome by ICAEW President Hilary Lindsay, followed by an introduction to UKSSD.

 

Keynote speakers are:

  • Amanda Mackenzie OBE (CEO of Business in the Community)
  • Lord Bates (Minister of State, Department for International Development)
  • Michael Green (CEO of Social Progress Imperative)

 

Panel 1, on Transforming communities, comprises Dr Jane Davidson (Chair/ University of Wales Trinity Saint David UWTSD), Richard Couldrey (Transition Network), Ian Townsend (Bristol Green Capital Partnership), Conor Moloney (Carter Jonas), Katharine Knox (Joseph Rowntree Foundation) and Sara Mahmoud (Shelter). They will share their experience of advancing sustainable development at the local level.

 

Panel 2, on Transforming lives, comprises John Elkington (Chair), Professor Kate Pickett (Equality Trust), Mike Barry (Marks & Spencer), Trewin Restorick (Hubbub) and Pragna Patel (Southall Black Sisters). Focusing on some of the key challenges facing UK society today, such as poverty, inequality, climate change and over-consumption of resources, the panellists will explore how the SDGs might be used as a framework for understanding how these issues interact, and how addressing the Goals comprehensively can transform lives in the UK.

 

Tanya Steele (Chief Executive of WWF-UK) will deliver closing remarks.

 

Session in Council Chamber

 

The parallel session in the Council Chamber, titled ‘Making the Sustainable Development Goals stick’, will help delegates better understand the goals and principles that underpin them while highlighting their relevance to the UK. It will be delivered by Open University, Impact International and Newcastle University.

Newcastle CONF | Sustainable Futures: Research, Policy & Practice for SDGs

big-newcastle-conf-8nov

The annual conference of Newcastle University’s Institute for Sustainability (IfS) will take place in London (Chapter Spitalfields, 9 Frying Pan Alley, London E1 7HS) on 8 November 2016 from 10am to 4pm.

 

Titled ‘Sustainable Futures: Research, Policy and Practice’, this event will focus on research, policy and practice that will help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, exploring the challenges in sustainability research at a range of scales – regional, national and international – with a view of  enhancing collaboration among academia, industry and policy.

 

The conference will feature:

  • A keynote speaker: Professor Patrick Paul Walsh (Professor of International Development Studies at University College Dublin and Senior Advisor to UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network SDSN, New York);
  • Some of the University’s sustainability researchers, led by Professor Phil Taylor (Director IfS); and
  • Sustainability experts from industry

 

The day’s programme comprises four sessions.

 

Session 1 (What is the role of academia in helping to meet the SDGs and where should they have input in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development?) will explore how academic research could play a greater role in policy and practice for sustainable development.

 

Session 2 (Addressing global challenges with integrated solutions) will introduce research from Newcastle University researchers on addressing global challenges for sustainability through integrated solutions.

 

Session 3, a roundtable session (How to bring research to policy for sustainable development), will bring together experts in research, policy and practice to identify how academic research and demonstration can inform policy for sustainable development in areas of air quality, energy, food, water, agriculture and waste.

 

A poster session will showcase some of the University’s sustainability research projects.

 

Please note that you can submit questions for debate in advance to sustainability@ncl.ac.uk
