The World Sustainability Forum is a well-established global platform for sustainability research and best practices. The event is organised and supported by the academic open-access publisher MDPI.
It also organises the MDPI Sustainability Foundation Awards to fund research to make the world a better place.
The 2023 forum will be coordinated with universities in Singapore, Basel (Switzerland) and Toronto (Canada). It will be a 24-hour event, held in the three locations, as well as online for worldwide participation in this global event. The forum will have four main subjects distributed in the three locations. Kicking off in Singapore, the focus will be on sustainability for social and community impact. We will then move on to Basel, where the Chairs will lead discussions on sustainability in interdisciplinary sciences – tools, organisations, and approaches. Finally, our last hub in Toronto will focus on sustainability in the built environment. As a hybrid event, it will provide scholars, industry, and the community with the opportunity to attend the event in-person at one of the three conference sites or, most sustainably, online.
SUSS and IAL are the local hosts for Singapore and the region.
