Sustainable Solutions Summit

Wednesday, 2 November 2022 1pm UK time, 9am Eastern Standard time

Special invitations to Journal Editors, Publishers, and Editorial Directors

Academic journals have a crucial, but underexplored, role to play in promoting sustainable development. To help advance this role, all academic journal editors, editorial directors, and journal publishers are invited to join the SDG Publishers Compact Fellows and the Higher Education Sustainability Initiative in a Solutions Summit. The virtual event will focus on the top recommended actions and industry trends to better align journal scopes and practices with making the world a better place through connections to the Sustainable Development Goals. In this Solutions Summit, you will learn from speakers in the journal publishing and editing space and collaborate with your peers. We will also discuss how to enhance research agendas and the delivery of research to practitioners. We will share strategies and tools to continue the conversation with all members of academia.
