Join SDSN | My new site


Membership in SDSN is free and open for non-profit institutions with a deep expertise in sustainable development. Want to become a member?

Who can join?

Membership in SDSN is free and open to not-for-profit institutions (not individuals). Institutions must be knowledge-generating, i.e. they must conduct research, analyses, and/or data collection, and can be universities, research institutions, foundations, or civil society groups.

Members have to be involved in research and/or education to participate in the global network; they cannot just engage in advocacy or communications activities.

Member institutions should have deep expertise in one or more areas related to sustainable development and commit a substantial amount of their own work towards finding and/or implementing solutions for the SDGs. They should be well-established institutions, having been in operation for over 5 years.

What are the benefits?

The global SDSN can provide you with a large set of activities to accelerate practical problem-solving for sustainable development. Find out more about the general benefits here.

All Nordic members of SDSN are invited to take an active part in developing actions to promote sustainable solutions at local, national and global scales within SDSN Northern Europe. Read more about what we offer members in SDSN Northern Europe.

How do I apply?

It is simple and free to apply for SDSN membership. Just complete and submit the online membership application form. Applications are accepted continually. The Executive Committee of the global SDSN Leadership Council reviews incoming applications and notifies new members quarterly.
