The International Advisory Board is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Ninth International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability and the call for submissions to the peer-reviewed International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability. http://onsustainability.com/conference-2013/
The International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability will be held 23 - 25 January 2013 at the International Conference Center Hiroshima, Hiroshima, Japan. This interdisciplinary conference is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in and concern for sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.
Proposals are invited that address issues of sustainability through one of the following categories:
a) Environmental Sustainability: What have been the forms and effects of human interventions on nature? How can we create a viable home for ourselves and the other lifeforms of the planet?
b) Cultural Sustainability: How does culture forge a productive diversity for the human species as well as nurture the sources of cohesion in ways of seeing, ways of thinking, ways of meaning, ways of relating to each other, ways of connecting with nature?
c) Economic Sustainability: How can we create economic systems which are environmentally, culturally, and socially viable?
d) Social Sustainability: What allows for all our participation as autonomous yet social beings? How do we promote good citizenship and ensure justice? How do we integrate the four fundamentals of environment, culture, economy and society so we can address our human futures and live to the full our human potentials? Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters/exhibits, or colloquia are invited.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 24 May 2012. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found at the conference website -
Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International reviewed International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication, as well as access to the journal. We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Hiroshima in January 2013.
