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 venue is Roma Eventi, Congress Center, Piazza della Pilotta, 4, Rome, Italy


Wednesday 9 to Thursday 10 September, 2020



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.


This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.
