The Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress (SRI) convenes the global community of sustainability professionals by providing an inclusive platform to share innovative ideas, and creating an open space for collaboration. In an effort to move knowledge to action and strengthen the accessibility of SRI, the third edition of the Congress, SRI2023, in Panama, will include an Open Day.

On June 28, 2023, the Congress will open its doors to the local audience, while offering the SRI2023 participants the opportunity to engage with stakeholders onsite. The Open Day is organized in partnership with Technological University of Panama and Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.

SRI is now accepting submissions for the Open Day. We invite local civil society groups and organizations, enterprises and educational institutions to submit activities to the Open Day program. The SRI2023 Open Day is a unique opportunity to showcase your work for the global SRI2023 audience of sustainability professionals gathered in Panama. 

We are looking for activities, such as:

  • Showcases and exhibitions by local sustainability organizations (e.g. citizen science, recycling, community gardening, energy use, product repair, etc.)
  • Exhibitions by local companies and producers
  • Project presentations from local schools and universities
  • Sustainability games
  • Stakeholder roundtables on sustainability issues critical to Panama and Latin America and the Caribbean region

There will be no SRI2023 registration fee to participate in the Open Day activities, which should be aimed at celebrating local sustainability efforts and innovation, increase public awareness of sustainability challenges and solutions, and build new connections between research and action. The Open Day will take place at the Panama Convention Center, with specific activities at the Technical University of Panama.

Submit your proposal for the Open Day activities by 15 May 2023 through the SRI2023 proposal submission portal. Contact sri@futureearth.org for any questions.

Please note that the Open Day activities are onsite only and language interpretation isn't available for these activities.
