Forum Theme: Security and Equality for Sustainable Futures

In the Anthropocene, human activities are recognized to have a significant global impact on the Earth's geology and ecosystems. This in turn requires inclusive and coordinated actions to ensure equality and security for human beings. Equality is a basic human right and is built on recognition of diverse values. Security includes not just military and political security but environmental, resource and livelihood security. Security and Equality are prerequisites for stability and sustainability. Social sciences and humanities have a vital role to play in clarifying and developing principles, norms, rules and institutions to undertake actions, and in participating in the dialogue among citizens and policy makers to achieve such a sense of security. This Forum seeks to create a platform for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research to contribute to transformations to the sustainable world.
