13–15 September 2021 The 9th World Sustainability Forum (WSF 2021)


This year, on 13th–15th September, MDPI has partnered with the University of Basel to bring you the 9th World Sustainability Forum (WSF 2021).

Calling for a “New Normal”

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged many of the world’s outdated economic, social, and environmental systems, prompting widespread calls for a global shift towards a more sustainable “new normal”.

Now, more than a year on since the world entered various forms of lockdown or pandemic management, WSF 2021 is an opportunity to help re-evaluate the relationships between society, politics, and the commercial world. By providing major sessions on topics of Business and Finance, Climate, Health and Medicine, Water and Education, WSF 2021 aims to establish platforms and networks among stakeholders and bring structure to the vision of a more sustainable world after the pandemic.

World Sustainability Awards – We Welcome your Nominations

At WSF 2021, we are excited to host this year’s World Sustainability Award and the Emerging Sustainability Leader Award, funded by the MDPI Sustainability Foundation and the Sustainability journal, respectively, and we welcome your nominations!

The recipients of the World Sustainability Award and Emerging Sustainability Leader Award are chosen from nominees by a Selection Committee consisting of a maximum of five members, including permanent members Dr. Shu-Kun Lin, founder and President of MDPI and founder and chairman of the MDPI Sustainability Foundation, and Prof. Dr. Ed Constable, former Vice President for Research of the University of Basel.

Nominees for the World Sustainability Award may be individual researchers or groups of researchers, whereas the nominees for the Emerging Sustainability Leader Award are individual researchers aged 40 or under at the time of the submission deadline. The awardees must have made, and continue to make, a unique and outstanding academic or societal contribution to sustainability in general or to a sustainability-relevant issue.

Awardees of both the World Sustainability Award and Emerging Sustainability Leader Award will receive a monetary prize of USD 100,000 and USD 20,000, respectively.

Abstract Submissions are Now Open!

Until the 13th July 2021, we are seeking proposals for session streams, sessions, and presentations of papers and posters for WSF 2021. All submissions should aim to foster research, networking, and debates in science and technology, the life sciences, and the social sciences, as well as fruitful exchanges between academia and the public, civic, or private sectors – We are looking forward to your submissions.

16–18 November 2021 International Congress on Education and Technology in Sciences—CISETC 2021

Chiclayo, Peru

The INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY IN SCIENCES (CISETC-2021) has a forward-looking vision to scientific and technological development, assessing the development possibilities found in the classrooms of different educational levels, becoming an academic scientific space, which aims to socialize the BEST TEACHING PRACTICES of MATHEMATICS, CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY, PHYSICS, STATISTICS related to the use of technology in its several forms.

Teaching Science with Technology in the current contexts is necessary because at present education is virtual, specifically STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) has taken a greater methodological predominance promoting teamwork, cooperation and problem-based project approach, therefore CISETC-2021 responds to this imperative obligation.

In this opportunity, interaction between lecturers and participants will dynamize communication and dissemination of scientific knowledge through conferences and workshops on theoretical or empirical issues regarding STEAM.
