About the conference

UN mandated “Decade of Action” has already begun from the year 2020 with an aim to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. This decade long endeavour is assigned to promote the shared vision of nations and proffer multipronged accelerated responses to one of the world's most serious challenges – reversing climate change. The main focus of the conference is to generate interest amongst all to concentrate on the burning issue of environmental mitigation through proactive uptake of sustainable approaches. It is in line with the global scenario wherein the latest developments occurring in the field of environmental monitoring & assessment have generated intense research in all branches of science (Biological, Chemical and Physical). The field of contemporary environmental issues demand affirmative action in fields including but not limited to biodiversity conservation/reclamation and environmental toxicology. Creation of sustainable cities through strict laws and policies for environmental protection while assessing environment status via GIS mapping and remote sensing comprise the basic step forward. Pioneering ideas of adoption of environmental economics and eco-preneurship constitute another important phase. Worldwide scientific findings necessitate that there is an urgent need to ignite young minds to think out-of-the-box and in an innovative manner to help stoke interest in environmental sensitization. The International E-Conference on Mitigating Contemporary Environmental Issues by sustainable approaches envisions to make available a platform for free exchange of ideas for the same.

Deadline for submission of abstracts extended to 11 February 2022 (Friday)
