International Conference on Sustainable Development

GPEDC • 16 June 2020

Due to the continued uncertainty around the global COVID-19 pandemic, the ICSD Organizing Committee has decided to convene the 2020 event virtually. This will allow ICSD to remain accessible to all, while providing our community with a forum to continue advancing the SDGs. We realize that this disease is affecting different countries on different timelines, and want to ensure that all participants, from all countries, have an equal opportunity to attend this exciting event. We’re hopeful that this may be the best ICSD ever, as travel costs and US visa processes are no longer barriers to participation! We hope the online format allows us to have the most internationally-representative event to date.

Here is what you need to know about ICSD moving forward:

  1. Our abstract submission process remains the same. The abstract application closed on 1 May, 2020. Thank you for your submissions!
  2. Our dates remain the same: September 21-22, 2020. However, the schedule will be adjusted to accommodate different time zones. We will provide information on the agenda, networking opportunities, and connection details in the coming months.
  3. Registration will be free for ALL participants. We will open registration during the summer.

Please subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter to receive updates on when registration will open.

We hope to see you online September 21-22 for ICSD 2020 as we promote Cross-Cutting Solutions for the Decade of Action.
