SOS-Int Sustainability Summit 2023

We are excited to invite you to our annual Sustainability Summit, taking place in Enschede at University of Twente from 2nd – 4th November 2024. We are incredibly grateful to the Green Office of UTwente for hosting us.

This year’s theme is: Travelling from crisis to perspective: A holistic journey for sustainability. The summit will bring together students, student representatives, student and youth organisations and staff working, studying or active in the international higher education sector. We will gather together to build collaborations, strengthen our network, learn from each other and be inspired to continue our journey of activism in its many guises for progressing climate and environmental justice.


Open Call for Speakers and Facilitators


You can now sign up to contribute to the content of the summit (until 11 September, 9 am CEST). Use this link to propose a session (or other activity) you would like to facilitate as part of the program! We will then curate the full programme accordingly, which may include establishing collaborations between multiple session proposers for greatest learning, knowledge exchange and partnership building.


What are we looking for? 

To build a sustainable future for all, it is important to take the space to celebrate what is going well, acknowledge what is holding us back, look at new horizons and plan our next steps! Share the results of your student-staff collaborations, climate and environmental activism on campus and beyond, education transformation for sustainability and barriers you may be facing.

We will travel together, share our challenges, enrich and inspire each other with empowering stories, impactful projects and successful partnerships. During this journey, we will take the next step towards being empowered to build this holistic, inclusive and connected society that we dream about. Please submit your proposals for meaningful sessions which are interactive, promote discussion and enable participants to contribute to collective problem solving and mobilising each other as change makers for climate and environmental justice.

So, make sure to inspire, support or empower others with your project, campaign, serious game, or lessons learned!
