Join in the *Science Summit at UNGA76*, a major contribution to advancing
Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14-30 Sept 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around
the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76) in New York in September
2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of
the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United
Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that
provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of
the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building.
Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and
societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation
exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a
more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent
benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a
unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership
can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors
and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are
set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through
thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

*Registration is available here.*
