With its topic-based working groups and inter- and transdisciplinary focus, the platform addresses urgent social challenges, based on sustainable development. It sees itself as a hub for a solution-oriented dialogue between science and society.

Policy and science: joining forces for a sustainable future

How should science participate in shaping a sus­tain­able future? How can politics, administration and science work together to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals? These questions were the focus of the event on 14 November 2023, a combination of the ARE's "Dialogue 2030" and the SCNAT's "Sustainability Science Forum". The video of the event is now online!
