In late October 2014, several SDSN members participated in the Sustainability Science Congress 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark, including: Guido Schmidt-Traub Executive Director of the SDSN; Jane Lubchenco, Professor at Oregon State University and Former head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); Johan Rockström, Director of Stockholm Resilience Centre; Nebojsa Nakicenovic, Deputy Director General and Deputy CEO of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA); Peter Bakker, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD); Aromar Revi, Director of the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS). Schmidt-Traub led one of the student workshops at the conference, which focused on how younger researchers can work across disciplines to influence global sustainability.
The congress brings together experts, academia, business leaders, and policy makers to provide a platform for science-policy interface relevant for global challenges. The congress is organized by the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) through a Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and a Local Organizing Committee (LOC).
