Dear All,
Further to the announcement below, the final deadline for abstracts for ISDRS 
2018 has been announced as 7th January 2018. Early bird registration is 
available until the 28th February.
Very best wishes of the season to all.
Pauline Deutz.

The 2018 International Sustainable Development Society Conference will be in 
Messina, Italy 13-15 June.  With the overall theme ‘Actions for a sustainable 
world: from theory to practice’, there are 27 tracks designed to collectively 
address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  The conference will be preceded 
by a one day workshop for PhD students and followed by a choice of optional one 
day sustainability tours, which take full advantage of the spectacular scenery 
and ancient history of Sicily.

See for information.  Conference call is below; 
each track has its own call for papers on the website.

Conference Call:
On the basis of the multi-year fruitful experience acquired by ISDRS, the theme 
of the 24th Annual Conference, “Actions for a Sustainable World: from theory to 
practice” (ISDRS 2018), aims to emphasize that we reached a cornerstone in the 
concept and practice of sustainable development. Indeed, the greatest challenge 
that humanity faces today is that we plan and carry out human activities in a 
manner compatible with the Earth’s resource systems. Despite the fact that the 
concept of sustainable development has been developed and studied for several 
decades now, its practical application still seems limited and meaningful 
targets have not been met: indeed, we are still operating unsustainably.

With the awareness that we must rethink our social and economic systems in 
order to make economic and social development more resource efficient and more 
equitable to all, both across the planet and in future generations, the ISDRS 
2018 will bring together leading experts, policy-makers and the academic 
community to translate recent scientific advances into actions on many levels, 
addressing how to face the global economic, social and environmental challenges 
of sustainability for which each and every stakeholder must play its role.

The theme aims to enable the participants to focus on how scientists and 
researchers are developing the theory and methods of sustainable development, 
as well as policy-makers, private and public organizations and citizens are 
translating them into real practice, and if those tools and related 
implementation will ensure the achievement of international goals, such as 
those set by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
