As the world is facing serious population, environmental, food, and security issues that pertain to human survival and existence, it is imperative that all efforts made in terms of research, knowledge production, social activism, and community initiatives be dedicated to global sustainable development that is founded on fundamental principles such as respect for life, human rights, and environment. Social sciences and the humanities are called to be at the forefront of such concerted global efforts in the area of education, research, and community engagement. Building awareness and mobilizing people on how sustainable development can serve as the guiding beacon for opening up ways to the future have to be systematically and strategically prepared, and this is where social science and humanities scholars can play an important role. Major contributions in terms of ideas, designs, models, and strategies on how society and culture at both the local and global levels can be geared toward creating and securing sustainable development are, therefore, expected to come out from this conference.

Papers may approach issues related to the main theme from various perspectives: humanities, social sciences, law, psychology, economics and business, policy studies, environmental studies, etc.
