PE&RC Day 2020
Wednesday 18 November 2020
Everywhere we go, people are talking about sustainability. But as the use of this term spreads its meaning has become increasingly misused. True sustainability is achieved when the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony and guarantee a development which can support itself and meet future needs indefinitely. Environment, economy and society are the three main pillars of sustainability but unfortunately societal and economical welfare are often prioritized over the environment. During the PE&RC Day 2019, we aim to put the environment in the spotlight and discuss its pivotal role in supporting societal and economic demands.
