The conference’s agenda is to ensure sustainable development.

So what is sustainable development? The most popular definition of sustainable development could be described as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet theirs”. Though there are different views and interpretations, it could be loosely defined as an ideal system with a set of wishful characteristics.

The conference aims to get experts from various fields, who will enlighten us on development model with sustainability.
