The Organization for the Promotion of International Relations (OPIR) Kyoto University, Graduate School Energy Science (ES), Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH), Global Center for Education and Research on Human Security Engineering (HSE), Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) are co-hosting the 3rd SUSTAIN (International Conference on a Sustainable Future for Human Security) 2012 which is organised by the Indonesian Student Association (ISA) Kyoto, Japan.

The past two conferences have attracted more than 250 participants from Europe, Africa and Asia, with highly-qualified papers and posters. This time we are expecting more than two hundred participants for oral and poster presentations.

The SUSTAIN conference originated from the need to provide an inter-disciplinary forum where the most serious problems affecting a sustainable future for human security can be discussed, in recognition of the fact that many future problems cannot be solved by a “siloed” approach.

The emphasis on a sustainable future is in response to the general awareness of the need to solve numerous human-related problems resulting from the rapid growth of modern society. The topic of a sustainable future for human security needs to be discussed in an integrated way, in accordance with the principles of sustainability, considering energy and materials supply, economies and trade, technology, cities, agriculture, social and environmental aspects.
The conference will address problems of primary importance for human security, discussing and proposing a more constructive and progressive approach to ensure future societal sustainability. The meeting will provide a common forum for a wide range of researchers and practitioners specialising in a range of subjects related to the conference themes.

Therefore the hosts and organisers cordially invite global scholars to discuss, disseminate and share their knowledge, research and ideas at our 3rdSUSTAIN. We look forward to welcoming you to Kyoto at the peak of its most colorful season of autumn.

Papers presented at The 3rd International Conference on Sustainable Future for Human Security 2012 will be published in the Environmental Science Procedia (Journal under Elsevier, ISSN: 1878-0296) and will be included in ScienceDirect, and indexed by Scopus.
