Conference Announcement

We are pleased to announce the first Global Studies Consortium Conference will be held at RMIT University on 16 - 17 June. This conference is presented by the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University.

The theme for this conference is 2031 - Looking Forward to a Less Troubled World. (link??)

This two-day interdisciplinary global studies conference envisages the world beyond 2030, where the Sustainable Development Goals have been met, or are close to being realised or, alternatively, where collective inaction and indifference have left the world teetering on the brink. It is open to anyone with an interest in debating the shape of the future.

Contributions are invited for formal academic papers and panels as well as informal discussion forums that address the broad conference themes. Beyond opening new spaces for future-focussed and interdisciplinary conversations, this conference advances the essential work of defining future global priorities for humanity.

Conference Convenor A/Professor Paul Battersby
