Kautz Conference 2023 


Current Challenges for Sustainable Development at Global and Regional Levels

1 June 2023

Széchenyi István University, Győr, Hungary





Nowadays we live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and thriving in turbulent times. It requires new way of thinking about our presence and future and we cannot manage social and economic life without involving a sense of sustainability and resilience. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a framework of global and regional guidelines to facilitate the realization of technological development in a more ecologically sustainable and environmentally conscious manner.

The conference is focused on the current challenges associated with sustainable development with an emphasis on all levels of territorial considerations, and from the perspective of various social and economic actors. Managing sustainable business activities is a challenge and the methods employed differ depending on the size of the firm. Similarly, sustainable development is crucial for social actors as well. Based on these ideas we welcome submissions on the topic that explore how social or economic actors can effectively manage the challenge of sustainability.

The main conference topics (not limited to):
- Companies’ sustainable behaviour in different industries of all sizes
- Other organisations’ sustainable behaviour in different industries
- Green technologies in different industries
- Green technologies in society
- Factors which can influence the sustainable way of thinking
- Sustainable tourism
- Sustainable value chains
- Financial management of sustainable development
- Reporting of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG)
- Measuring social responsible and sustainable activities of firms of all sizes

We accept papers which provide information about these and related topics with quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods. Introduction of the topic with a global or regional or local approach is welcomed.
The conference language is Hungarian and English. There is no conference fee.
