About ICOHS 2018

Whilst ecology and environmental studies have traditionally been covered within the natural sciences and earth sciences, increasingly, sustainability has taken root in subsets of the humanities and social sciences, in such areas as cultural sustainability, spiritual ecology, energy economics, environmental sociology and sustainable development, to name a few. Indeed, there is an important and often overlooked relation between the interaction between sustainability and the humanities and social sciences. Understanding this relationship through research and discussion could provide solutions to many of the ecological and urban problems that exist in the world today.

Following the conclusion of the MDGs in 2015, the United Nations launched a more expanded initiative known the Sustainable Development Goals that covers not only a broader expanse of issues, but at its heart, it recognizes that sustainability is a concept that is often either misunderstood or misinterpreted. To be clear, sustainability is not an environmental problem, but rather a human problem. This particular conference, will look at sustainability from perspectives in the humanities and social sciences that include, but are not limited to art, design, culture, economics, education, language, philosophy, religion, and ethics.

With the theme Back to the Future, the objective of ICOHS 2018 is not to redefine sustainability, but rather to draw upon the expertise of the humanities and social sciences as fields through which we can better understand the interrelation between nature and human cultures which impact sustainability both positively and negatively.
