Dear Friends and Colleagues,


On December 2015, the world celebrated the international climate change agreement reached at the end of United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) held in Paris. Critics believe that the Paris accord does not go far enough to protect the planet. Nevertheless, the COP21 agreement is widely considered to be the turning point for the world as it is the most far-reaching climate commitment made so far by 195-member states of the United Nations. Against this backdrop, You are invited to join the academic community from around the world to get-together in PARIS to examine the pivotal role of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
