Sustainability Conference, 2006
Welcome to website of the Second International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability. The inaugural Sustainability Conference was held at the East-West Centre, Hawai’i, in February 2005.
The second Sustainability Conference is to be held in two significant areas of Vietnam, Hanoi and HaLong Bay from Monday 9th to Thursday 12th January 2006. Day 1 and Day 2 of the conference will be run in the historic and beautiful capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. Delegates will then travel to HaLong Bay for Day 3 of the conference. HaLong Bay is listed as a World Heritage site containing exceptional natural beauty and having aesthetic importance.
The conference will work in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of sustainability. Main speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.
Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues. For those unable to attend the conference in person, virtual participation is also available.
Presenters may choose to submit written papers before or after the conference for possible publication in the International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability, a fully refereed academic journal. Virtual participants can also submit papers for refereeing and publication in the journal.
