About the Conference

About the Conference

Background: The 2nd International Conference on Sustainability, Human Geography and Environment 2018 (ICSHGE18) will debut in the Central European touristic city of Kraków, Poland. The aim of ICSHGE18 is to bring together a top field of researchers, scientists, engineers, scholarly students and persons from local and international businesses and governmental organisations. The conference targets individuals and organisations to exchange and share their experiences, novel ideas and research findings regarding all aspects of sustainability, human geography, the environment and interdisciplinary societal studies – and discuss the practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted during such experimentation. The format of the conference will have simultaneous dual-platform presentations, workshop sessions, an exhibition of poster presentations as well as tours of the city, Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, Wieliczka Salt Mine and a research excursion to Zakopane and Tatra Mountains National Park.

Host: The conference is predicated on the success of the Polo Centre of Sustainability, a European research centre that has expanded into Eastern Europe and operates a branch in Southeast Asia. ICSHGE18 is a prominent international conference reporting on sustainability, human geography, the environment and interdisciplinary societal studies. The conference themes and supporting tracks parallel the Centre's research areas – further information on each can be found on the Centre's website [polocentre.org]. The following section on Topics will expand upon each theme and supporting tracks and will detail a short summary on each theme.

Five-day programme: Set in the up-scale five-star Hotel Sheraton Grand Krakow, located on the bank of Wisla River, near the famous Wawel Royal Castle, the hotel offers stunning views of both. The venue is also just a 10-minute walk to Market Square within the Old Town and famous Kazimierz district. The first day will facilitate workshops oriented around demonstration proposals, project developments and project creation. The second and third days will combine a stimulating technical programme. The fourth day will take delegates to the Zacopane located within the Tatra Mountains National Park, for a sustainability and development-based research excursion. The fifth day there will be tours of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Zet-18-SUSTAINABILITY-1

Sustainability Research

Reuse, recycling and resource management have been key sustainability concepts and project-focuses. The Triple Bottom Line (TBL), three pillar approach, in sustainable development considers a balance between environmental, social and economic aspects (Elkington, 1994). In sustainability terms, actions that promote this balance, with an understanding of variation to location and time, stress a concept called full cost accounting.  Supplemental to United Nations standards, TBL thinking, within a full cost accounting perspective, integrates aspects of natural and human capital as measurable ends and is not solely economically focused (i.e. as prioritised in most countries' measurement profiles). Advantages to economic growth can fund new technologies, improve quality of life and ration the use of natural resources. Conceptually, sustainability research promotes balance and fosters present and future generations; it strives to add knowledge base by innovation and, when necessary, replicative confirmation of previous research – introspective of the scientific method.

 

The Pathway Forward

The science behind sustainability research primarily emerged from the severe global events that had and were unfolding approximately a quarter century ago; evidence from the literature exemplifies this by the large amount of concepts and techniques that have been tested and continue to be tested within its varying interdisciplinary fields. At present the forefront of sustainability research endeavours to adapt qualitative and quantitative sustainability concepts into methods that take into account past, present and future pathways. Our vision of sustainability is to conduct sound, ethical and productive research that compliments these strata and pathways. Fundamentally, we support the ideal for a cleaner, safer society with sustainably higher standards of living that excel in supporting current and future generational people. From this standpoint, it is hopeful that any furthering of knowledge within sustainability and relating fields is accessible and shared to achieve maximum innovation and benefit. Focus and delivery is on a broad array of sustainability research within industry, government and academia.

Zet-06-HUMAN GEOGRAPHY

Human Geography: A Brief Look

Human geography is a major subdiscipline within the wider subject field of geography. Traditionally, geography is considered the study of the Earth’s environments and peoples, and the interactions between them. Geography comes from ancient Greek, literally translating as ‘to write or describe the world’. The two fundamental halves of geography are physical and human. Physical geography generally means the science of the Earth’s surface, while human geography usually refers to the study of its peoples, and geographical interpretations of economies, cultural identities, political territories and societies. Physical geographers classify and analyse landforms and ecosystems, explain hydrological, geomorphological and coastal processes, and examine problems such as erosion, pollution and climatic variability. Human geographers analyse population trends, theorise social and cultural change, interpret geopolitical conflict and seek to explain the geography of human economic activities around the world.

 

The 'Human' in Human Geography

Human geographers tend to explore social, economic, cultural, political and demographic dimensions of human existence, and situate analysis in geographical space (conceptualised across and between scales from the body to the city, nation and globe). While diversity defines contemporary human geography, there are common questions of geographical scale, causality, agency and structure, interrelationships and networks, place and movements. Human geographers are concerned with observed distributions and analytical explanation. They invariably focus on the spatial and, whether implicit or explicit, reflect on the moral and political dimensions of human activities. The Polo Centre of Sustainability has strong human geography expertise and experience. It has a vast array of globally distributed researchers with specialisations in developing world geography includes research and project expertise in Africa, Asia with hotspot research in Southeast Asia and Latin America. Other key topics include global health; remote sensing; demographics, migration and population trends; transportation; food and agriculture; and geographic information systems (GIS). The Centre's scope of the 'Human' in “Human Geography” refers to civilisation and society, while 'Geography' refers to the relations of proximity and distance and spatial patterns. For the Centre, human geography is thus about societies and their spatial patterns and relations.

XX-Zet-08-ENVIRONMENT

Environment: The Balance

The variety of life on Earth, its biological diversity, is commonly referred to as biodiversity. The number of species of plants, animals and microorganisms, the enormous diversity of genes in these species, the different ecosystems on our planet, such as deserts, rainforests and coral reefs are all part of a biologically diverse Earth. Appropriate resource management, conservation and sustainable development strategies attempt to recognise this as being integral to any approach. In some way or form, almost all cultures have recognised the importance of nature and its biological diversity for their societies and have therefore understood the need to maintain it. However, power, greed and politics have affected this balance.

 

The Importance of Biodiversity

Biodiversity boosts ecosystem productivity where each species, no matter how small, all have an important role to play. For example, a larger number of plant species means a greater variety of crops; greater species diversity ensures natural sustainability for all life forms; and healthy ecosystems can better withstand and recover from a variety of disasters. And so, while we dominate this planet, we still need to preserve the diversity in wildlife. It has long been feared that human activity is causing massive extinctions. Despite increased efforts at conservation, it has not been enough and biodiversity losses continue. The costs associated with deteriorating or vanishing ecosystems will be high. Sustainable development and consumption would help avert ecological problems. Preserving species and their habitats is important for ecosystems to self-sustain themselves. The pressures to destroy habitat for logging, illegal hunting and other challenges are making conservation a struggle.

 

Instability and Environmental Backlash

The State of the World, 1999 Report from the Worldwatch Institute suggested that the global economy would be seriously affected by environmental problems, such as the lack of access to enough resources to meet growing population demands, if nothing was done. A decade and a half later, environmental degradation continues and, its state-of-the-art, contributes to social and political instability that has had a runoff effect into a variety of global security issues. As security issues augment, foreign policy of many nations, as a consequence, face an increase in violence and human rights abuses as disputes over territory, food and water spill into wars and internal conflicts. This instability has led to a vast environmental backlash in which the Polo Centre of Centre has aligned itself with the pragmatic themes of nature and culture; energy, environment and climate; natural resource management and environmental impact; environmental conservation and advocacy; environmental ethics and philosophy; and environmental management systems. Our mission, to strive to keep the environment and our planet's biodiversity as abundant as possible, by way of, conservation and a clear understanding as custodians toward wildlife and resources alike.

Zet-05-INTERDISCIPINARY SOCIETAL STUDIES

Interdisciplinary Societal Studies

Interdisciplinary societal studies is an area of research that encompasses learning about how contemporary societies deal with their surroundings and how they can enhance sustainability in terms of the economy, society and politics. This area of research is somewhat considered the think-tank within the Polo Centre of Sustainability as it unifies societal issues on a broader sense and theoretically orients itself within the social sciences, including aspects of anthropology, economics, geography, history, mass communications, political science, psychology, sociology and women's studies. It focuses on thematic and overlapping issues that umbrella human rights, differences between rich and poor, game theory, societal harmonisation, international relations, multidimensional views of power and power relationships and meta-geopolitics. This type of research goes beyond countries and examines the multidisciplinary differences in levels of global governance and trade, from the United Nations, North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union to recent large-scale trade agreements, worldwide corporate influence and international agendas (e.g. the European Union’s 20-20-20 Agenda). We seek to examine the broadened background as an understanding of societies and as a useful tool for the global citizen in the pursuit of happiness, peace and harmony.

 

Interdisciplinary Concentrations

Special interdisciplinary concentrations include: political transformations; international comparative studies on environment, sustainability and social change – and understanding how well key theories and dynamics perform in practice. Specialisations in complex global sustainability issues are addressed by international governance arrangements, rules and organisations, both public and private. Pressing issues are those related to climatic changes, biodiversity, water quality, the quality of ecosystems and natural resource suppliers. In terms of multinational corporations, the private sector plays a crucial role in shaping sustainability in the current economic paradigm. Innovative environmental partnerships, specifically focusing on the role of societal and ethical responsibility of business and the market, at large, are key within this paradigmatic focus. The Centre observes that political power struggles continue to trouble humanity as it struggles (1) to find a cooperative middle-ground in harmony with our biological needs as a cohabitant species on the planet, (2) to cooperate among ourselves and (3) to organise and cooperatively plan a future for our children. This power struggle and lack of cooperation continues to lead to conflict, war and desperation.

The Inaugural International Conference on Sustainability, Human Geography and Environmental Studies 2009 (ICSHGES09) was hosted on the Italian Riviera, within the city of Diano Marina, IM, Italy. With the inception of ICSHGES09, their was the opportunity to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers and scholarly students in the exchange and shared experience of all aspects of sustainability, human geography and environmental studies. The inaugural conference innovated upon the practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted within the conference's themes: (1) Sustainability related research and statistics, (2) Human geography and cultural studies and (3) Environmental studies and ecologically based research. The ICSHGES09 Conference Proceedings have been archived at the Polo Centre of Sustainability.

When ICSHGE18 takes place, it will have been nine years since its inauguration. The Polo Centre of Sustainability looks forward to hosting another productive and engaging international conference, and we are enthusiastic and confident in raising the bar of academia, innovation and first-rate conferencing. We have expanded the themes and supporting tracks, workshops and demonstration proposals to encompass a grand five-day event within the historical city of Kraków, Poland.
