The state of our planet continues to deteriorate at an alarming rate. We have arrived at a situation where we need to determine urgent solutions before we reach a point of irreversible deterioration.

Our current civilisation has fallen into a self-destructive process by which natural resources are consumed at an increasing rate. This process has now spread across the planet in search of further sources of energy and materials. The aggressiveness of this quest is such that the future of our planet is in the balance. The problem is compounded by the pernicious effect of the resulting pollution.

Much has been written in different contexts about reaching sustainability but the concept itself needs to be defined in the framework of all different disciplines in order to arrive at optimal solutions. Hence this conference is essentially a trans-disciplinary meeting in order to find appropriate sustainable solutions, ie those involving collaboration across a wide range of disciplines.

It is time to take stock of our current situation and try to formulate constructive proposals and policies for a way forward
