Conference Theme: "Brave New World"

March 20–22, 2011 | The Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan

The Inaugural Asian Conference on Sustainability, Energy and the Environment, was held this year with the Second Asian Conference on the Social Sciences, in Osaka, Japan. The event offered a diverse variety of papers that encouraged interdisciplinary reflection, and the forging of new relations across national borders. Around 200 registrants and speakers from around the world joined together in Osaka, where the recent earthquake and nuclear situation in Japan was a strong point of discussion in the context of sustainability.

We would like to thank all the delegates who made the event so enjoyable, including conference programme adviser, Professor June Henton, and conference keynotes Keith Miller and Lowell Sheppard.
