This year, during the High-Level Political Forum 2024 (HLPF) country delegations, the scientific community, NGOs, and other key stakeholders reconvene for a second time to continue discussing the role of science in SDG acceleration. Science Day is an initiative co-convened by SEI, UNDPUN SDSN, ISC, and UN DESA to position the need for including scientific evidence in the decision-making around the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030.

In its 2024 edition, Science Day continues to offer a space within the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) for decision-makers, scientists, academics, and stakeholders to delve into the intricate systems, strategies and synergies needed to drive SDG acceleration towards 2030. This Special Event remains dedicated to fostering meaningful dialogue and collaborations around scientific discoveries, methodologies, and tools supporting policy action in an integrated and evidenced-based manner. Insights and perspectives are intended to inform the 2024 Summit of the Future.

A detailed agenda and objectives of the event will be shared soon. In the meantime, revisit the conclusions from the first Science Day event last year and make sure to save the date on your calendars.
