Publish before a global audience. Present in a supportive environment. Network and create new relationships. Hear the latest research. Experience the UK. Join a global academic community.
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, ECSEE2015 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
The European Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment 2015 (ECSEE2015) will again be held alongside The European Conference on the Social Sciences 2015 (ECSS2015), The European Business and Management Conference 2015 (EBMC2015), and The European Conference on Politics, Economics and Law 2015 (ECPEL2015).
ECSEE2015 Conference Theme: “Power & Sustainability”
Sustainability remains as a powerful ideal that acts as a driving force in relation to the pressing concerns of energy and the environment. Its proponents often protest their lack of power to effect change because of the control systems already in place in the form of tax-evading multinational corporations, banks that support them, and governments that turn a blind eye to malpractice. Is the claim to lack of power as serious as is alleged, or are there other approaches that have not been tried? Advocates of sustainable growth surely have the responsibility to search for alternative avenues and corridors of power? The abolition of slavery in the British Empire, for example, was the work of one man who resisted and confounded the argument that no economy could survive without it. This conference will take the concepts and lenses of power and sustainability as we seek multidisciplinary solutions and work together towards the creation of a sustainable world. We look forward to seeing you (again) in Brighton in 2015.
