Sustainable Recovery in Post-Pandemic Era: Green Economy Challenges

14.07.2021 21:26 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

December 7 - 8, 2021

International Online Scientific Conference

Deadline: October 1, 2021

The Conference aims to bring together scholars and researchers to discuss the issues of post-pandemic environmentally-sustainable economic recovery from the economic, social, public policy and legal standpoint. In the dawn of the pandemic crisis, the European Union launched the proposal of the Environmental European Law (2020) setting a legal framework to achieve the 2050 climate neutrality goal, only a year after the introduction of the European Green Deal (2019). The interconnection of climate action and environmental protection activities, dealing with social and political challenges and inclusive COVID 19 recovery is the central theme for critical consideration from both, theoretical and practical perspectives, creating the forum for holistic and integrative approaches’ identification and development. During the pandemic, governance and media practice have been changed as well.

The empowerment of the EU industry and business, boosting the circular economy, particularly, the waste control and management as well as building the new Just Transition concept of workers and community adaptation to green jobs, alongside with introducing respective educational practices are core issues that will be in the focus of the Conference participants.

The public health crisis calls for strong responses based on solidarity, cooperation and responsibility. That requires the identification of current challenges find new paths to support key international and national actors in their efforts to “repair” and “transform” societies by tackling the inequities and, stimulating the growth.
