Background information

The international conference „SustEcon Conference – The contribution of a sustainable economy to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals” will take place on 25 and 26 September 2017 at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany (organised by the NaWiKo project).

The focus of the conference will be on the contributions of the sustainable economy to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This contribution can be observed on a number of different levels: Innovations toward achieving the SDGs are to be as much a topic at the conference as methodological questions about measuring sustainability. In addition to that, the differences between various discourses and concepts and their respective contributions to the sustainable economy will also feature prominently in the conference. A further topic of interest will be the (political) framework conditions and barriers to a sustainable economy as well as the contribution of science to the SDGs.
