Who can join the SDSN?
Membership in the Sustainable Development Solutions Network 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. 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.
The SDSN and its members work closely with businesses and governments, particularly around the development and scaling up of new solutions. Businesses can become SDSN Business Partners in recognition of their contributions to the work of SDSN.
