Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

We invite you kindly to take a look to the Conference papers Proceedings of the 15th IRDO International Scientific and Business Conference entitled SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND CURRENT CHALLENGES 2020: PERSONAL AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE. The Conference was organized  virtual on 4 and 5 June 2020. Main organizer was IRDO Institute from Maribor, Slovenia, with University of Maribor as scientific partner. Conference was supported with many other organizations and co-financers.

The main purpose of the conference was to look for connections between human responsibility towards society and ourselves for our shared sustainable future. Such individual responsibility is a prerequisite for social responsibility, without broader environmental and social responsibility there is no survival of mankind or no tool to achieve a sustainable development / future. The emphasis this time was on the work of the individual, who can make a significant difference in society, and thus his active participation becomes the driving force for global renewal anywhere.

The EU has adopted a number of different strategies for the path out of the crisis, and the most recent one is the European Green Deal. More content on this topic can be found here: and

The conference was organized in the spirit of the UN Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, incorporating 17 sustainable development goals. These are also enshrined in the Republic of Slovenia’s Development Strategy until 2030, but cannot be achieved without personal and social responsibility. The 2020 Conference tried to provide a broader insight into what researchers, teachers, managers, and others, can do to integrate personal and social responsibility into the social and natural environment in which we operate.
