2018 Sustainability and Development Conference

Sustainability and Development ConferenceSustainability and Development Conference
November 9-11, 2018
University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, MI


Sustainable development, as a concept and call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and guarantee human well-being, is perhaps the greatest challenge facing humanity. The complexity of the meanings of sustainable development have meant that many scholars, researchers, decision makers, and practitioners see in it diverse ways in which to aspire for and achieve societal goals. Scholarly research, student training, and new opportunities for meaningful change continue to increase, especially with the United Nations-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals finding traction with governments and NGOs alike.

In collaboration with the journal World Development, this international conference on Sustainability and Development seeks to bring together a diverse and interdisciplinary constituency to engage with the best approaches and means to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and assess progress towards them.

We welcome abstracts for oral presentations, lightning talks, panel sessions, posters, and workshops. Abstracts must address a conference theme and follow the abstract guidelines. The submission of full papers will be strongly encouraged, and the best 25 papers will be published as a special issue.

We are also accepting applications for financial assistance for students and scholars from lower-income countries.

Submissions are due July 15, 2018. For complete information, visit the conference website.

  1. Please note my just published book on ‘Sustaining Prosperity, Nature and Wellbeing – what do the indicators tell us? (Routledge 2018). The book deals with the factual bases of economic growth and development and in particular their environmental sustainability. Best regards, Peter Bartelmus
