Subject: Re: Invitation: UN SDGs Conference 23-26 January 2018
We would like to thank you for your expression of interest in participating in the United Nations International Conference on Sustainable Development - (ICSD) which will take place from 23rd - 26th January, 2018 @ International Exhibition & Convention Centre (IECC)-London, United Kingdom.
In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the "universal, integrated and trans-formative" 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The goals are to be implemented and achieved in every country from the year 2016 to 2030. This conference is aimed to establish an inclusive and transparent intergovernmental process on SDGs that is open to all stakeholders with a view to developing global sustainable development goals.
Sustainable development, or sustainability, has been described in terms of three spheres, dimensions, domains or pillars, i.e. the environment, the economy and society. The three-sphere framework was initially proposed by the economist René Passet in 1979. It has also been worded as "economic, environmental and social" or "ecology, economy and equity". This has been expanded by some authors to include a fourth pillar of culture, institutions or governance, or alternatively reconfigured as four domains of the social - ecology, economics, politics and culture, thus bringing economics back inside the social, and treating ecology as the intersection of the social and the natural.
