5th International Conference 4G

About the conference

The past few decades have been extremely difficult for maintaining a balance between growth, globalization, governance, and environmental sustainability. The world’s GDP has increased, leading to economic growth, poverty alleviation, increased food security and improved health standards on one hand however, on the other hand this economic expansion and business growth has come at a heavy price to the planet. The diminishing natural resources, climatic changes and many more unprecedented changes are major hurdles for sustainable growth.

Dealing with these challenges are the top priority of every country, society and business units for sustainable growth. Green management practices are essential for the survival of business firms and societal organizations which should have deeper understanding and action plan in place for the upcoming challenges and oppurtunities generated through these practices. These strategies should be implemented immediately in a sustainable manner for achieving growth, good governance and positive global impact which may lead to a balance between need and greed, the need of the hour.

Consequently, Green, Growth, Globalization and Governance (4G), should be considered the four pillars of sustainable development which should move hand in hand for attaining all round development. This inclusive approach will improve the way businesses were done in past if 4G is on the agenda of action at both macro and micro level of the world economy.

Conference Objectives

This conference aims to provide a platform for discussing the needs, problems and solutions of the 4G and reflect on the policy initiatives required to achieve a sustainable balance between all the 4G. The concept of 4G is not restricted to any disciplinary boundary therefore we welcome researchers, intellectuals, business leaders, politicians and social activists to share their thoughts, and leverage the platform to design solutions for meeting the challenges of times ahead.

Conference Highlights

The foundation of this conference rests on the spirit of exchange and engagement. It will include keynote address and panel discussions by leading national and international experts, pre-conference workshops, best paper award, dissertation award, cultural events and city tours.
