    With the theme "Sustainable energy for the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement", VEF 2017 will highlight the multiplier effects of integrated approaches for sustainable development at the national, regional and global levels.

    The Forum will also accentuate the potentials of the sustainable energy NEXUS - linking energy to water, food and health - as well as INNOVATION as a global driver for accelerated sustainable growth.

    The Forum will continue to be the global high level platform for discussing the pivotal sustainability challenges of our age, and the catalytic role of energy in achieving inclusive and sustainable development.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the Vienna Energy Forum.

    Journalists are invited to cover all sessions of the VEF. A news conference will take place before the opening of the high-level session on 11 May, at the Hofburg.
