ICSD 2020: 8th international conference on sustainable development

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): European Center of Sustainable Development (ECSDEV)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 09 - 10 Sep 2020 Location: Italy (Rome) Venue: Roma Eventi, Congress Center, Piazza della Pilotta, 4

Conference objective and philosophical framework 

The International Conference on Sustainable Development is organized by the European Center of Sustainable Development in collaboration with CIT University.

The 8th ICSD 2020 is inspired from the critical challenge of human, environmental, and economic sustainability concerning the present and future generations in a global-scale context.

The Conference theme is: 

"Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education".

This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and analytical approaches. 

The 2020 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science.

We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD2020 program, and DRR practitioners are especially encouraged to provide an abstract for the second stream:

Environmental sustainability:

  • Water and soil conservation, climate change, disaster risk reduction, 
  • Renewable energies, food and environmental legislation

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.

For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, send an email here. 

Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) can be published in the European Journal of Sustainable Development. 

Conference proposal guidelines

Several types of information will be requested when you submit your proposal, but the "Long Description" is the central and most important component. It contains the information which reviewers use to evaluate the proposal and, if your presentation is ultimately published in the journal, serves at the Abstract of the journal article. While each proposal should address the purpose, methods, and implications of the scholarly work, the content within these general categories will vary somewhat, based on the type of scholarly work to be presented and the type of presentation you choose. Illustrations of the topics, or elements, to be addressed in the proposal are presented below. Please note that all proposals and presentations must be in English or Italian.
