Thematic Tracks

Thematic tracks allow for discussions of considerable depth and detail on niche topics. The tracks are held as parallel break-away session on some of the most vital issues, in sync with the overall Summit theme and sub-themes. Interspersed with plenary sessions, these thematic tracks are populated by experts and key practitioners from the grassroots. In the past, we have witnessed some very innovative and engaging sessions on topics such as Linking Climate Risks to Policy & Practice; Mainstreaming Biodiversity for Responsible Business; Climate Resilient Agriculture; Resource Efficiency & Circular Economy; Realizing the Electric Mobility Vision; Challenges & Strategies to Mobilise Climate Finance; Youth Ecopreneurs; etc.

This year WSDS will be hosting 21 distinct thematic tracks, deliberating on an array of sustainable development issues and solutions
