Agendas

Phosphorus Week is the combination of two phosphorus sustainable events: the Phosphorus Forum and the Sustainable Phosphorus Summit. Registration for P-week includes both events.

The Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance hosts the annual Phosphorus Forum in which knowledge leaders interact around topics related to phosphorus sustainability. The Phosphorus Forum is an excellent opportunity to network with diverse organizations and people.

See the Phosphorus Forum agenda.

The Sustainable Phosphorus Summit (SPS) is the international conference on phosphorus sustainability.

We are currently soliciting abstracts to be considered for live presentations at the event. By attending SPS, you’ll be able to engage with leading experts, present your research, as well as help inform important discussions regarding the wicked challenges of phosphorus sustainability. Submit your abstract here.
