Updated: International conference "Local Resources for Sustainable Development"

Updated: International conference

August 27 -30, 2012 in Valmiera, Latvia

The conference will focus on one of the objectives of the Baltic Sea Project which is to encourage students to participate in developing a sustainable future.

Sustainable development was defined by the Brundtland Report in 1987 as “development that meets the need of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Meeting the needs of the future generation depends on how well we balance social, economic, and environmental objectives or needs when making decisions today.  

Fundamental to Sustainable Development is a common understanding that development is essential to satisfying human needs and improving quality of life, but that it must be based on the efficient and responsible use of natural, human, and economic resources.

The conference programme will include poster exhibition, lectures, workshops, excursions and social activities.
