The “2018 International Student Conference on Environment and Sustainability (ISCES 2018)” will be launched on the World Environment Day (June 5) this year. In response to the proposal to build a beautiful China by the Chinese government and the World Environment Day theme, the topic of ISCES 2018 will be “Less plastic pollution, better city life.”The number of participants will be around 400. They will be divided into the following four groups: 1) Education for Sustainable Development (ESD); 2) Food and Health; 3) Ecosystem and Climate Change; and 4) Green Development. We will borrow the successful experience of last three years by providing different activities for participants so that they could have a platform of communication. Also, we believe the conference will be beneficial to promoting awareness, capacity and networking amongst students, as future leaders, policy makers and activists and updating them of recent challenges and developments in the area of environment and sustainability.

A high-level panel discussion on ESD and green development will be arranged on June 5 after the opening ceremony. Besides, three other side events are planned to be held during the conference.

Ø  On June 5, UN Environment-Tongji Institute of Environment for Sustainable Development (IESD),the organizer of this conference, Xinhua News Agency and Global Universities Partnership on Environment and Sustainability (GUPES) will jointly hold a forum entitled Towards the Future: Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Higher Education.We will invite experts, officials and representatives from private sector to share experience and best practices on ESD.
