|Poster for the workshop|
I am glad to announce that we at Samuchit Enviro Tech have organized a Nationwide Conference on Urban Sustainability in collaboration with LAYA and INECC on the 27th April, 2019 in Yashada, Baner.
The whole idea of undertaking a national conference is to connect/share happenings in the context of Urban Sustainability across different states of India as well as from different cities in Maharashtra. Its all about sharing knowledge, learnings and connecting to the global Sustainable Development Goals, smart city initiatives and citizens engagements undertaken on ground.
We believe that citizens are the critical stakeholders of the city and informing or sensitizing them on global issues is the need of the day. In addition to citizens embracing sustainable and responsible behaviour, we also want to encourage citizens to form pressure groups and impact policy decisions, which will promote local actions that lead to global solutions.
From this perspective, the one day conference will include inputs from various experts and practitioners. In addition, we are also calling for papers based on original research or outreach work broadly fitting into the conference objectives but focused on the following thematic areas.
- Housing for all in urban context
- Safe and affordable Transport within cities
- Cultural and Natural Heritage in urban setting
- Citizens Participation in Governance of cities
- Disaster risk Mitigation for cities
- Solid and Liquid Waste management and Air Pollution in cities
- Access to safe green open spaces in cities
- Operationalizing SDG 11 for urban sustainability in India
- Sustainability education in urban context
Please submit abstracts of maximum 200 words, this will go through a review process where papers will be selected for oral or poster presentations. The last date for submission of abstracts is 31st March, 2019.
Urban citizens, organisations, institutions, professionals, government officials etc. all are invited to participate in the meeting and contribute to the interactions, irrespective of whether you are presenting a paper or not! The conference will be focused on interactions rather than talks and lectures.
