Here are some of the papers being presented at the September TEESNet conference.  We notice that a focus on the SDGs is outweighing that on ESD which is to be expected and a welcome sign.  A focus on GC/GL persists, however, with little discernible interest in EE even though the Goals do require a focus on environmental sustainability:
