Deadline: July 15, 2018
Abstracts and financial aid applications are invited for the Sustainability and Development Conference 2018 taking place November 9-11, 2018 at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, MI. In collaboration with the journal World Development, this international conference on Sustainability and Development seeks to bring together a diverse and interdisciplinary constituency to engage with the best approaches and means to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and assess progress towards them.
Sustainable development, as a concept and call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and guarantee human well-being, is perhaps the greatest challenge facing humanity. The complexity of the meanings of sustainable development have meant that many scholars, researchers, decision makers, and practitioners see in it diverse ways in which to aspire for and achieve societal goals. Scholarly research, student training, and new opportunities for meaningful change continue to increase, especially with the United Nations-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals finding traction with governments and NGOs alike.
They welcome abstracts for oral presentations, lightning talks, panel sessions, posters, and workshops. Abstracts must address a conference theme and follow the abstract guidelines. The submission of full papers will be strongly encouraged, and the best 25 papers will be published as a special issue.
They are accepting applications for financial assistance from students and scholars from lower-income countries. Poster presentations are not eligible for consideration. Please use the Submittable link below to access the financial aid application form.
- Open to students and scholars from across the world
- Financial assistance is for students and scholars from lower-income countries only.
