The 5th World Sustainability Forum aims to be a platform for researchers to present and engage with others on issues relating to sustainability within this historical context. We seek to contribute to policy-relevant, change-oriented, and transdisciplinary research and collaboration from science and technology, the life sciences, and the social sciences. Three thematic areas have been identified to structure this event:

Thematic Area Sustainability Dimension

Sustainable Science, Technology, and Energy
Panel 1
Panel 2
Panel 3

Sustainable Consumption, Lifestyles, Mobility, and Cities
Panel 4
Panel 5
Panel 6

Sustainability in Economics, Business, and Management
Panel 7
Panel 8
Panel 9


As part of the output of this conference, we plan to publish a special issue in Sustainability, as well as three edited books, one for each of the three thematic areas. We, the co-chairs of the conference and I, as well as the organizing institutions, are looking forward to welcoming you at the 5th World Sustainability Forum at the University of Basel from 7 to 9 September 2015
