This year's theme: collaborating for good

With the ISO Strategy 2030 guiding our way, we are working to achieve the shared vision for a better world represented by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)– which offer a blueprint for peace and prosperity, for people and planet. The London Declaration further reiterates our commitment to taking urgent climate action. 

Solutions to today’s biggest challenges require us to think creatively, boldly and collaboratively. We can only get there if we join forces with our community of members and experts, our partners and global stakeholders.  

At the ISO Annual Meeting 2022 let’s work together in imagining and designing the solutions we need to achieve our shared vision. The future has begun, now it’s up to us to determine where it leads
