Register to Attend the ESG Forum


14-18th October 2024

Format & Registration

This year, the online Forum provides an opportunity for a community-driven Earth System Governance conference event without the imperative to travel. The ESG Forum will feature a series of 41 online events and 10 hybrid events co-organized by various segments of the ESG network, with plenary sessions organized by both Forum co-hosts and the 2024 ESG Forum Committee and the ESG Scientific Steering Committee.

The Forum schedule boasts a variety of event types including panels, roundtables, innovative sessions, meetings, plenaries and more. The Forum is open for attendance not only to the entire ESG Network but to the global community of students, scholars, researchers, practitioners, policymakers and others interested in the latest insights in the field of earth system governance research and its implications for society.

View the event schedule for the 2024 ESG Forum. A detailed programme with event descriptions, speaker bios, and relevant resources will be released July/August. Registration for the ESG Forum will open by the end of July, please stay tuned.

Practical Information

The overarching coordination responsibilities, including scheduling, communications related to the ESG Forum, and the creation of Zoom links incorporated into the Forum schedule, will be overseen by the ESG Project Scientific Steering Committee and the International Project Office.

Event organizers are expected to assemble their panels (including any related calls for papers) and/or organizing their events, as well as communicating well with relevant participants through their networks.

Registration for the forum will be free.

Interested in attending only certain events? Registration for the forum will occur as a one-time registration for the entire Forum, by which you will gain access to the ESG Forum online environment. Within the online environment, you will be able to follow and access your favorite events.

The ESG Network is a highly active, diverse, and interdisciplinary community and we hope to provide multiple easy ways to connect with other Forum attendees and panelists. Please stay tuned upon registration for updates on how to engage with the Forum community.
