The Global Conference and Meeting on sustainable economy and society:
A range of challenges from volatile oil and food prices, financial, economic and debt crises to climate change are threatening global efforts to achieve development that is sustainable, or that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. These multi-dimensional challenges do not have purely economic solutions, nor purely social or environmental ones. They require integrated solutions that combine economic, social and environmental elements.
An increasing number of nations, communities, academic institutions and businesses are committed to the overall idea of environmental, economic, and social sustainability. Making a swift and equitable transition to a sustainable economy and society will require a major shift in how we think about our economy and its proper role in society and a series of well thought out steps for transforming the governance, structure, and activities of public and private institutions.
To facilitate an exchange of opinions, ideas and experiences, the Charitas Fund (Global Network for Sustainable Development) is pleased to offer the opportunity to share the most updated information related to this issue, through this international gathering:
The conference programme is dedicated to the current situation and offers an open international forum for the discussion of this topic. The aim is to establish new design perspectives and actions through dialogue with representatives from civil society, politics, economics, science, individuals amongst others. The Conference will also engage participants in sharing experiences and articulating perspectives on how to enhance their activities in the financing of their various projects, especially the NGOs/CBOs including round table panel discussions and break-out sessions, interactive dialogue, workshops, caucuses and other activities.
The objective of this conference is to bring together leaders, senior decision makers, policy leaders, leading executives and social innovators amongst others to initiate and develop a manifesto, platform and roadmap for sustainable economy and society development.
The Conference Agenda will cover the following areas:
(1) Sustainable Economy and Human Development - SEHD
(2) Social Economy and Humanities - SEH
(3) Human Rights and Good Governance - HRGG
(4) Sustainable Development – SD
The Capacity Building Training Workshops:
Furthermore in order to strengthen nonprofits capacity building and to enhance sustainability and maximize impact, we will offer accessible, cost-effective training and education for development actors. The program helps you learn through case studies, exercises, and group discussions, providing a complete learning environment. You will learn from, and share experiences with, practitioners working in the field around the world. This program gives experienced practitioners a fresh perspective and provide novices and volunteers the training they need to be successful working in the field of development.
