Become a Conference Sponsor

The Seedbeds of Transformation conference offers a unique opportunity for diverse innovators from across Africa to come together and share their knowledge around critical sustainability challenges. To make this a truly representative “marketplace,” we need your help in mobilising experts in research, practice and policy to join us in Port Elizabeth.

We are offering an opportunity for sponsorship of attendance grants. These grants are designed to support travel and participation of researchers and practitioners from across Africa who are doing innovative work that advances sustainability. Each grant will partially or fully support economy-fare travel, accommodation, meals, registration and related conference costs.  We will support grantees who demonstrate compelling financial need and an ability to meaningfully contribute to the conference objectives. Applications will be assessed by the Travel Grant Committee in an equitable and transparent way.
