2nd Asian Conference on Education for Sustainability (ACES) 2015 Hiroshima

  • Conference Call
  • Today’s sustainability challenges require a holistic perspective that embraces the critical relationship between the classroom and community service. This is evident as human communities as well as their diverse biological and cultural heritage are increasingly threatened by mounting environmental and societal problems from climate change and exploitation of finite resources to the inequities and human costs of unsustainable practices and technologies.

    Progress on these issues is often further complicated by the contemporary hegemonic mind-​set of the status quo, resulting in complacency, inactivity and the general perception of individual futility. This is particularly pronounced in many developing countries in Asia in which the focus on economic growth at the expense of the environment and the failure to recognize the inextricable link between these sustainable domains are commonplace.

    That is why educators play a pivotal role in understanding, challenging and altering such destructive and unsustainable courses. By examining and interpreting humans’ beliefs about their relationship to nature and intertwining this knowledge and policies across the disciplines, educators can broaden our understanding of sustainability and forge new sustainable paths.

    This Second Asian Conference on Education for Sustainability (ACES) 2015 – a three-​day, international, peer-​reviewed conference – will provide an interdisciplinary platform for educators, academics, researchers, administrators, activists, students and professionals. With the theme of Educating for the Future, the conference will promote a critical understanding of the innovative and organic approaches from education toward sustainability. The event will commence on March 22 – 24, 2015 in Hiroshima, Japan at the KKR Hotel Hiroshima and is organised by the PRESDA Foundation.
