In the interconnected world, achieving SDG17: Partnership for the Goals is vital to creating a shared sustainable future, and this is an endeavour that must be undertaken together. WFWS-2024 brings together diverse voices of all genders from around the world to engage in dialogue and knowledge-sharing. Beginning with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the importance of ethical approaches, transnational collaboration, and science as a tool for diplomacy and positive change is emphasized.
