Science, Society, and Sustainability – Closing the Knowledge-Action Gap 

May 23rd, 2024 | Doors open at 6:00 pm | Event start at 6:30 pm | 1014 - Space for ideas, 1014 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028

Join us for a panel discussion with the new Rector of the University of Cologne, Germany, and DAAD President Prof. Mukherjee, and our guest speakers to look critically onto the topic of sustainability. In an increasingly interconnected world, where the pursuit of sustainability transcends boundaries, are we doing enough to apply our scientific knowledge to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a sustainable society? 

Engage in the dialogue on bridging the gap between knowledge and action, examine the different goals and measures between the United States and Europe, and exchange new ideas for pathways to a sustainable future. There will also be opportunity to network with various stakeholders from academia, businesses, and other communities from Germany and the U.S.
