From 1 to 3 November 2018, we invite you to one of the most inspiring, historical, and sustainable cities in the world – Heidelberg, Germany! At Sustainable Development in Action (SDiA) 2018, you will learn more about different aspects of sustainable development and have the chance to start concrete actions towards a more sustainable world. Heidelberg, recipient of the European Sustainable City Award and the Global Green City Award, is the perfect location for our interdisciplinary conference on sustainable development.

SDiA 2018 will consist out of keynote speeches by national and international sustainability experts and influencers, thematic workshops on current global sustainability issues and their connections to the Sustainable Development Goals, and concrete action labs in which participants are trained and supported to develop their own sustainability projects and learn more about the future, such as startups for sustainable development, scenarios and simulations, media labs, consulting and policy paper workshops etc.

We have the honor to organise the SDiA in cooperation with the Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE). For more information, including options to register for the conference, visit
