Leadership for Sustainable Socio-ecological Systems
About the Conference
In the present century, threats to the availability of raw materials, habitat, lifestyles and living conditions are alarming. In addition, we run short of many community-based requirements in our socio/ecosystems primarily due to our greedy lifestyle. It is time, to contemplate and reengineer to stabilize and restrain our natural ecosystems that support the beauty of life on Earth.
The education and awareness need to be spread across the youth and entrepreneurs that the habitat wherein we live does not belong to us and it belongs to the future generation to whom we have to handover the un-mutilated habitat. In this context, the term 'Sustainability' has become a buzz word spoken at all forums. As a consequence, companies, business sectors, research organizations, municipal administrations and national agencies are seeking/rendering /looking at sustainable systems/approaches/policies/know-how of habitat reengineering/ development for sustainable livelihood.
