|Description:||1st Interdisciplinary Symposium on Sustainable Development "Which transition for our societies?"|
|Location:||Namur, Palais des Congrès de Namur, Belgium|
|Subject:||The overarching theme of the symposium is to analyse how the concept of transition ties in with the notion of sustainable development (What are the issues that justify a transition? Which kind of transition and how to put it in place? Is it scientifically, economically, and socially achievable? What are the barriers? What positive experiences are there?) More specifically, contributions must tie in with one of the six areas proposed for the parallel sessions: - Global commons - Food, agriculture and animal farming - Housing and land-use planning - Transition models - The role of public authorities in the transition - Transition and non-governmental actors [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
