Hosted by RMIT University, this two-day event will address whether the international community will likely be able to to meet all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or, alternatively, will collective inaction and indifference leave the world teetering on the brink?

This cross-sector conference calls for scholars, students, advocates and community members to join with a keen interest in debating the shape of the future.

The year 2030 is a compelling milestone in global governance. It is the deadline for the international community to achieve all seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals.  … The danger is that social inequalities will remain entrenched.

This event has an ambitious goal to address the future of development and humanitarian aid work; from measuring peace to e-governance and participatory democracy, to mapping the new and great powers and the risks of global fragmentation, to working with cities of surveillance, to speculating on the colonisation of outer space.
