This June, Sustainability Week 2017 will showcase innovation like never before. This multifaceted and integrated event will educate and inspire attendees to pave the way for a better, more sustainable future. Hosted by the City of Tshwane and organised by alive2green, Sustainability Week 2017 will be held at the CSIR International Convention Centre from 13-15 June.

This year’s edition of Sustainability Week is set to become Africa’s most important event in driving economic transformation through sustainable development, as Africa’s key policy, business and technical leaders connect to share knowledge and insights.

Anchor events on the schedule include the African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum (ACCSF), the Green Building Conference, the Sustainable Energy Seminar and the Eco-Logic Awards.

In parallel with these anchor events, Sustainability Week 2017 will also host an array of industry-specific seminars dedicated to providing solutions to sustainability challenges, as well as unpacking the economic opportunities that they imply. Transport, water, agriculture, tourism, mining, manufacturing and infrastructure, all stand to benefit immensely from global trends towards circular economy principles.

Energy is at the cutting edge, with Africa set to become the world’s number one renewable investment destination, while Vision Zero Waste holds the promise of transforming African cities into clean and prosperous spaces for all to live and thrive in. A special seminar dedicated to Youth and the Green Economy is geared to showcase the vibrant career opportunities available to the smart workforce of the future.

In addition to stellar lineups of conference speakers, Sustainability Week 2017 welcomes a number of new workshops, designed to assist sustainability practitioners in implementing their projects, that are led by dynamic hosts, guaranteed to set minds alight with ideas.
