From 14-16 October, 2014, Portoroz (Slovenia) will host the 17th European Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP 2014).

The objective of the 17TH ERSCP is to provide a platform to stimulate, develop and disseminate information about new initiatives aiming at fostering the implementation of sustainable consumption and production within local and regional sustainable development initiatives. The Roundtable will have a special focus upon the urgency for developing serious efforts to speed up the transition to post fossil carbon societies in light of numerous climate change challenges.

The following main themes will form the framework of the Conference:

7.  Challenges for Making Progress in Cross-Cutting Themes including Green and Inclusive Entrepreneurship and Sustainable & Ethical Investments

In all the themes, contributions and case studies aiming to achieve “The Europe we want” will be addressed, with special attention given to sustainable/smart cities and communities, mutual regional integration, and cooperation among the countries in the Mediterranean, Central Europe, and South-Eastern European areas as together we learn from experiences from Nordic, Western and Asian countries. Based upon responses to the Call for Papers, the final themes of the ERSCP Roundtable will be elaborated into sub-themes.
