Conference Theme: “East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery”
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in sustainability, energy & the environment. As with IAFOR’s other events, ECSEE2017 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
From natural phenomena and the results of climate change, through pollution and societal traumas, migrations and war, the enormous challenges that face humankind and our environment are frequently daunting and difficult to comprehend. However, with every new challenge or disruption comes the opportunity for innovation and discovery. Whether inventing new technologies, implementing innovative systems, enacting better policies, legislation, or governance, or ensuring greater cooperation and information sharing, responses are many and varied.
From incremental shift to radical change, from local to regional, or from the national to the global, this international conference will focus on the challenges that demand a collective response. It will highlight the need to harness our abilities as scientists, policymakers, practitioners, engineers and educators, to find multidisciplinary solutions in pursuit of the common goal of a sustainable world.
The European Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment 2017 (ECSEE2017) will again be held alongside The European Conference on the Social Sciences 2017 (ECSS2017). Registration for either of these conferences will allow participants to attend sessions in the other.
