About the Conference

Dear friends,

This year our Institute completes 50 years of its existence and as a part of this celebration, our college is hosting an International Conference on "Environment and its Impact on Society" on 18th to 20th August, 2013 at Kolkata, India.

The International Conference is on the subject "Environment and its Impact on Society" and would involve participation of academicians, research scholars and students from various institutes and Universities and NGO's with international participation.

A new vision of the role of education and public awareness in achieving sustainability has emerged during the last few decades. In this period, organizations of all nature have become increasingly aware about achieving and demonstrating sound environmental performance by controlling the effects of their activities, products and services on the environment. Many organizations have undertaken environmental reviews, audits and other procedures to assess their environmental performances. The emerging consensus is that when environmental management systems become a part of running of any organization, only then can an organization survive in the long term.

A gradual shift towards sustainable development is expected to push environmental management systems to the front line of organizational activities. This has already taken place to a large extent in most developed nations. Newly industrialized countries are showing signs of incorporating environmental policies by increasingly encompassing environmental safeguards into their economic activities.

It is at this juncture that our Institute has decided to hold a conference to offer a platform for academicians, teachers, policy makers and entrepreneurs for deliberating over this very important and imperative issue.

A Conference of this nature will highlight successful examples from around the world concerning attempts of integration of education and public awareness into national and local plans and strategies for sustainability, technology, curriculum development, new partnerships and networks.

With a view to enhance the standard of the deliberations, we take this opportunity to cordially invite you to participate in the seminar. For details you may log on to jdbiindiaintsem.in
