The Inaugural Agora will take place on 6 June 2016 at UN Headquarters in New York, USA, on the theme “Transforming the World Through Sustainable Energy for All: Leaving No One Behind.” The aim of the event is to consider the role of sustainable energy and energy systems in the implementation of the 2030 Development Agenda. The event will focus on: how the private sector is using sustainable energy to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); how science can interact with policy; and how to deploy existing knowledge and innovative renewable technologies to “leave no one behind.”

Organized by the Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT) and Eko Renewable Energy (EkoRE) in collaboration with the UN Permanent Mission of Honduras, the event will take place back to back with the 1st annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum) which will hold in New York from 6-7 June.

The Inaugural Agora will include two interactive, high-level panels that will explore the overall theme of The Agora, with a closing panel that will focus on the Challenges and Opportunities. RASIT and EkoRE will offer conclusions and recommendations for the road ahead, with a brief “Outcome Document” to be presented to the President of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) as a contribution to the STI Forum and to the High-level Political Forum of ECOSOC in July 2016.
