Delegates from all over the world who attended the Eleventh International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability.
There is widespread consensus that sustainable development pays dividends for posterity. However, the fault lines in developmental processes call for us to rethink methods and approaches with honesty, transparency, and integrity. Deep research needs to inform the nexus between the four pillars of social, economic, cultural, and environmental sustainability. New models and modalities of participation need to be scoped and developed.
Universities and governments all over the world are moving into the management models for research with a focus on impacts. Our Sustainability knowledge community has a seminal foundation of taking holistic and accountable approaches for research and development since the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. It is the single largest platform for the discourse of sustainability that is holistic through the four pillar approach.
The Eleventh International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers.
