Alternet Day

at the Sustainability Research + Innovation Congress 2024 in collaboration with Sustainability Science Days

12 June 2024 – Helsinki, Finland

Alternet will host a special day of conference sessions as part of the Sustainability Research + Innovation Congress 2024 in collaboration with Sustainability Science Days, hosted in Helsinki Finland. The Alternet Day (Wednesday, 12 June 2024) programme will include three sessions focused on the theme of nature restoration.

Since 2021, the Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress (SRI) has united global leaders in research, government, civil society, and business to meaningfully advance progress towards sustainability. The SRI Congress offers an exceptionally inclusive and inspiring global platform for co-creating state-of-the-art solutions and innovations and building a coalition of the willing to achieve a sustainability transformation. SRI is co-convened by Future Earth and the Belmont Forum with local co-organizers.

SRI has been held in Oceania, Africa, and Latin America, and is now heading to Europe. In 2024, SRI will be organized in collaboration with Sustainability Science Days (SSD), which for over six years has been the largest sustainability science conference in Finland. SSD is a joint collaborative effort between Finland’s two largest universities, the University of Helsinki, and Aalto University. SRI/SSD2024 will bring together 2000+ participants from more than 100 countries online and in-person with events on both campuses in Helsinki and Espoo.
