This year, for the first time, we are pleased to offer a variety of pre-conference sessions. These sessions will take place on May 23, 2023, as an extension of the SSD2023 conference.

Join us to explore the intersection of sustainability and art, science communication, sustainability and language, and sustainability and education. This inaugural pre-conference is a really exciting step for SSD as the conference continues to grow and evolve.

We will be cooperating with The Science Basement from University of Helsinki, University of Eastern Finland’s (UEF) Master's Degree Programme in Pedagogy and Teaching for Sustainability, among others! Below is a very preliminary program for the May 23 pre-conference.
