What is ICCSD2021?

International Conference for Collaborative Sustainable Development 2021 is a platform for intellectual and rhetorical indulgence for stakeholders to gather around and innovate towards developmental solutions which sustainably eradicate or diminish the dire problems facing our society.

The future of humanity and indeed all of life depends on us

~ Sir David Attenborough

We have on our shoulders an immense responsibility to safeguard the future of our coming generations. Previously what corporations, policy makers, practitioners and governments regarded as development and progress have triggered irreversible global climatic changes like those which do not exist in recorded history. This is threatening the very habitability of our planet. Likewise, social, economic and political gaps between genders, socio-economic groups, economies and countries have widened at astonishing rates resulting in poverty, hunger, sickness, crisis, inequality and lack of education. It is not through bold actions, policies, strategies or plans that such consequences can be reverted or delayed. It is through changing the way we think and approach developmental challenges that we can truly begin to strive towards a more habitable planet and just, equitable and inclusive society. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to gather stakeholders which include government agencies, NGOs, policy makers, corporations, universities, academics, students and practitioners under one roof and create a focused environment that allows them to exchange and create ideas, knowledge and solutions and build symbiotic relationships which will potentially generate opportunities for sustainable socio-economic growth and development targeting the dire problems facing our societies today..

Our Goals

We believe that through creation of such an environment, the stakeholders will be able to broaden their intellectual horizons to comprehend the significance of focusing on global good than on immediate returns. Our success will be in causing a paradigm shift towards a sustainable growth mindset.

Join Our Cause
