27th - 29th June 2018: World Symposium on Social Responsibility and Sustainability, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Aims

Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of social responsibility and sustainability, the aims of the  World Symposium on Social Responsibility and Sustainability”  are as follows:

  • I.   to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government agencies and enterprises from the region with an opportunity to  display and present their works in the field of social responsibility and sustainability;
  • II.  to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of social responsibility and sustainability projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the globe; 
  • III.  to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, 
  • which aim to show how  social responsibility and sustainability may be enhanced in practice;
  • IV.  to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the book “Social Responsibility and Sustainability: how businesses and organizations can operate in a sustainable and socially responsible way" will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be a further volume of the award-winning World Sustainable Development book series  published by Springer,  which since its creation in 2015 has become the  world´s leading book series on applied sustainable development. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.
