The 25th International Sustainable Development Research Society (ISDRS) Conference – Sustaining Resources for the Future
June 26 - June 28
The International Sustainable Development Research Society (ISDRS) is pleased to announce its 25th annual conference to be held on June 26-28 in Nanjing, China; hosted by Nanjing University!
Sustaining Resources for the Future
Within our theme “sustaining resources for the present and future”, this conference will explore the fundamental question of how to sustain current development without stripping the resources that the future need, including biological resources, mineral resources, as well as a well-functioning ecosystem. How could the academic progress in sustainable development be translated into a workable plan for action through a dialogue between scholars and stakeholders? This conference would like to create such an exchange opportunity among conference attendees, decision makers, policymakers, and private sectors.
This conference will explore the challenges and opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle the resources to realize a sustainable present and future. At the same time, the conference will examine the possible mechanisms through which global society could work together to realize sustainable development.
We invite contributions on the resource-oriented researches, ranging from investigation of resource utilization patterns in the continued developing world and its impacts on the Earth natural and socioeconomic systems to creative solutions to the problems induced by resource utilization of the growing global population. This conference will serve as an open forum for diverse intellectual discourse on these topics, focusing on identifying practical guidelines toward a sustainable future on the local, regional, and global scale.
