The goal of this conference is to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum to promote a deeper understanding of diverse academic approaches to Sustainability Science and to discuss how to design a framework for integrating and structuring knowledge on Sustainability Science..
The conference has four primary objectives:
In order to accomplish the above objectives, the conference provides short
sessions in specific academic fields related to Sustainability Science
to enable discussions among researchers in the same/similar academic field
but from other institutions. Dialogue between researchers from different
institutions is expected to promote the understanding of each institution.
The tentative structure of the conference is to have a couple of plenary
sessions and several parallel sessions in such fields as follows.
Track 2: Food, Water and Resources
3: Long-Term Scenario for Sustainable Society
Track 4: Sustainability Education
