“Connecting the World for a Sustainable Future” is a realistic response to the global challenges all life faces on this planet, and thus, is more important than ever before. 828 participants from 98 countries from various fields gathered and discussed initiatives towards a sustainable future and long-term strategies on global issues to seek new roles for science centres in society. The science centres/museums’ action plan, the “Tokyo Protocol” provides concepts with concrete steps towards sustainability and it was focused in the Summit to consider the future actions. Next Summit (SCWS2020) will be held in MIDE Museo Interactivo de Economía in Mexico City in 2020.
