[UPDATE] The Inaugural European Conference on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment 2013
full name / name of organization:
Welcome to ECSEE2013 - an IAFOR event
CONFERENCE THEME: "Sustainability, Society and the Environment: Searching for Synergies"
Sustainability has emerged as the most important global issue for business, industry, government, and academia, and yet to begin with sustainability was associated only with environmental concerns such as energy and global warming. It is now recognized that the concept of sustainability is applicable to all areas of human society, for example in terms of social/economic justice, or responsible business practice. Issues such as poverty, hunger, education, health care, and access to markets should be a part of the evolution of any comprehensive sustainability paradigm as we work together to achieve a sustainable future. ECSEE 2013 will address these various dimensions of human sustainability as we invite scholars from around the world to address questions and search for synergies and solutions to the complex issues surrounding sustainability in a forum encouraging serious and thoughtful exchange between academics, members of the global business community, and practitioners in the fields of human endeavor that link these. We call on scientists from around the globe to meet and share our respective outlooks and collective wisdom on a critical issue of common concern: the pursuit of a sustainable world.
Special Theme: "Sustainability, Society and the Environment: Searching for Synergies"
The conference theme is "Sustainability, Society and the Environment: Searching for Synergies" and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives.
