5th IAFOR Asian Conference on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment (ACSEE) 2015 Osaka

  • Conference Call
  • The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) is holding its 5th Asian Conference on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment (ACSEE) 2015 in Osaka, Japan at the Rihga Royal Hotel on June 13 – 16, 2015.

    This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in sustainability, energy and the environment. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACSEE2015 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

    The Asian Conference on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment will again be held alongside the Asian Conference on the Social Sciences (ACSS) 2015. Registration for either conference will allow attendees to attend sessions in the other.

    ACSEE2015 Conference Theme: “Power & Sustainability

    Sustainability remains as a powerful ideal that acts as a driving force in relation to the pressing concerns of energy and the environment. Its proponents often protest their lack of power to effect change because of the control systems already in place in the form of tax-​evading multinational corporations, banks that support them, and governments that turn a blind eye to malpractice. Is the claim to lack of power as serious as is alleged, or are there other approaches that have not been tried? Advocates of sustainable growth surely have the responsibility to search for alternative avenues and corridors of power? The abolition of slavery in the British Empire, for example, was the work of one man who resisted and confounded the argument that no economy could survive without it. This conference will take the concepts and lenses of power and sustainability as we seek multidisciplinary solutions and work together towards the creation of a sustainable world. We look forward to seeing you (again) in Osaka in 2015.

    The organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of inter/​disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.
