Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
You are kindly invited to the 18th IRDO International Conference INNOVATIVE SUSTAINABLE and SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE SOCIETY 2023: Empowering Society, Environment and Economy for Sustainability, to be held on 8 and 9 June 2023 online, as a participant.
In 2023 we humans have recognised that the current global environmental, social, economic, and political crisis is destroying life on Earth, including humankind. We need to accept this fact, and we must, and we can try to solve this disastrous development in order to enable the current and coming generations to survive. Action for a more innovative, sustainable, and socially responsible society is urgent. Join-in the conference to learn and suggest what and how to empower all segments of our socio-economic environment to support the ecosystems self-governing mechanisms.
During the conference, you will be able to take part in discussions like:
- Keynotes in Smart Education for Corporate Sustainability Reporting,
- CyberSystemic interactions connecting researchers for transdisciplinary research,
- sections on Acting and reporting, like: Sustainably and Socially responsible reporting; Cross Generational learning and researching; People in digital workspace: student section; and Socially responsible concepts and cases.
Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to hear about and discuss essential topics of bridging the sustainability implementation gap with systemic approaches, green transition in education, including climate education, participatory approaches in education and community management for sustainable development, and building an Economy of Well-Being for Slovenia. You will be invited to co-create Home on Earth with women societal innovators from all continents, participating in a newly established Home for Humanity Movement for Planetary Regeneration.
»We are in the fight of our lives. And we are losing. Greenhouse gas emissions keep growing.
Global temperatures keep rising. And our planet is fast approaching tipping points that will make climate chaos irreversible. We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator.« (UN Secretary-General António Guterres, UNFCCC COP 27, 2022).
Nature requires human society to either be innovative, sustainable, and socially responsible or disappear from Earth. This trouble results from human lack of personač & social responsibility, mostly.
This year Conference theme is Empowering Society, Environment and Economy for Sustainability. Therefore, we kindly invite you to participate in the conference to enrich and share your experiences, views, and suggestions with researchers, top consultants, experts, and experienced practitioners from around the globe.
