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 9th ICSD 2021 is inspired by 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 2021 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 a holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic, and social concerns intersect.
We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the following streams within the ICSD2021 program:
1. ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY:
Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance,
Emerging Countries, International Trade,
2. ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY:
Water and Soil conservation, Climate Change, Disaster Risk Reduction,

3. SOCIO-CULTURAL SUSTAINABILITY:
