Global Sustainable Development Congress 2024

The Global Sustainable Development Congress co-hosted by Thailand’s Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation brings together 3,000 global thought leaders and innovators to discuss urgent solutions to the sustainability emergency.

Challenging the usual thinking on what higher education, governments, businesses and society must do to help society meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the congress is a call to action for global universities and businesses to pivot their educational, research, innovation and outreach programmes towards tangible outcomes.
