Envisioning Tomorrow

In our interconnected world, achieving SDG17: Partnership for the Goals is vital to creating a shared
sustainable future, and this is an endeavor we must undertake together. WFWS-2024 brings together
diverse voices of all genders from around the world to engage in dialogue and knowledge-sharing.
Beginning with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we emphasize the importance of ethical
approaches, transnational collaboration, and science as a tool for diplomacy and positive change. Join
us to explore how through global cooperation, science can bring about a more equitable, sustainable
and united future.
