Transforming for Sustainability

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) unites all aspects of sustainable development: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership. To support this development, there is a need for interdisciplinary research that focus on solutions to these challenges.

The conference 'Transforming for Sustainability' strives to explore a broad range of perspectives from academic researchers, as well as public and private organisations concerning the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Moreover, the conference seeks to create an inclusive community of researchers, private and public organizations from Denmark and abroad as well as promote interdisciplinary solutions to the SDGs.

The transdisciplinary themes for this year’s conference are: 

  • Cities
  • Food and Bio Production
  • Coasts and Oceans 

The first day of the conference focuses on the latest research, which aims to understand some of the most urgent challenges related to the sustainable development of cities, food and bio production, coasts and oceans. The second day of the conference focuses on developing transdisciplinary solutions to these challenges.

The conference's research commitment includes conducting collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Conference participants will represent a network of academic researchers and experts from the private and public sectors, who can engage in discussions of complex and multifaceted questions of sustainable development.

Furthermore, Roskilde University aims to position itself as a university that promotes interdisciplinary research projects, especially in the context of the SDGs. Roskilde University is dedicated to research as well as knowledge transfer to policymakers, communities and other relevant stakeholders. Roskilde University aims for the conference to be a catalyst for developing research, networks and new projects that can support the sustainable development agenda.
