CALL FOR PAPERS
Sustainable Development and innovative practices
24 - 25 novembre 2017 Hammamet - Tunisie

The economic, social and environmental challenges have become considerable and the concept of sustainable development is constantly growing with the various problems related to poor implementation of best governance practices and the irreversible damages caused to the environment. In fact, we can’t consider, on one hand, the environment with a huge risk of deterioration and, on the other hand, humans, governments, societies and economies. In opposition, social, political, technological and natural dynamics evolve in interaction and it becomes necessary for the social sciences to confront together objects of an interdisciplinary nature.

Researchers, economic decision-makers, policy-makers and pedagogues must therefore address Sustainable Development from different perspectives as the integration of this issue is part of a resolutely interdisciplinary approach, questioning disciplinary boundaries. Sustainable Development should be analyzed by the teacher as well as the learner, by the producer as well as the consumer, by the politician and the citizen. We need to understand how to invest, produce, consume, teach ... in a sustainable way? What innovative practices would ensure sustainable development?

This conference is therefore meant to be a forum for exchanges between researchers and practitioners, pedagogues, academics, managers and officials of state, public and private organizations on questions related to sustainable development. Submission of multidisciplinary research is encouraged. Several types of contributions can be presented: literature review, empirical work, case studies, description of an intervention approach, corporate practices, testimonials and experience feedback for practitioners, proposals for action by high school students and students, posters, documentaries, etc.
