2nd Global Conference: Environmental Justice and Global Citizenship
13 to 15 February 2003, Copenhagen, Denmark

Environments, Sustainability and Technologies

This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference
aims to explore the role of ecology and environmental
ideas in the context of contemporary society and
international politics, and assess the implications for our
understandings of fairness, justice and global citizenship.

The 2003 conference is one of an annual series of
conferences which make up a wider project concerned
with the possibilities of integrating social, economic and
environmental concerns by focusing on four inter-locking
areas (http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/ejgc.htm ).

In particular, the 2nd Global Conference on Ecological
Justice and Global Citizenship will explicitly explore the
relationships between environments, sustainability and
technology, the role of technology in creating possibilities
for sustainable resources for the future, and the inherent
problems and dangers which accompany that role
(http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/ejgc2cfp.htm ).

Papers, presentations, reports and workshops are invited
on any of the following indicative themes:

1. The Individual and the Environment: exploring the
interaction between individuals, households, and the
environment. Issues surrounding household waste,
energy efficiency, household technologies and lifestyle
choices will be considered. The impact of changes in
household ecology on social, national and international
environmental issues will also be assessed.

2. The Deployment of Technology: reflecting on the
manner in which technologies are mobilised and
deployed; their relationship with TimeSpace and the
contributions of Actor Network Theory (ANT), Critical
Geography and Sociology of Science; the social nature of
technology; the manner in which technologies can be
deployed to help us understand more about our
environments, covering issues such as GIS, etc. Papers
are sought that develop these ideas further in an
environmental context.

3. Public Perceptions, Technology, and the Environment:
examining public perceptions of the possibilities and
challenges offered by technology, public understanding of
risks of technological developments in relation to the
environment - for example, public perception of the risks
afforded by genetically modified food and crops;
consideration of the relationships between a broad range
of other technologies and the environment.

4. Technology, Law and the Environment: examining not
only how law regulates technology but also issues of
access to and transfer of environmental sustainable
technologies and whether law can encourage the use of
best available technologies.

5. Technology and Development: the extent to which
technologies can encourage sustainable development;
how developing countries can gain access to the most
sustainable technologies; whether patterns of
development are predicated on wrong perceptions about
the role of technology; the coverage of and access to
alternative technologies, intermediate technologies, and
the role of education.

6. Technology, Buildings, Cities and Planning Policy: the
role of technology in designing and constructing buildings
and cities to more sustainable effect; the impact of
information technologies; knowledge management and
the environment.

7. Transport and the Environment: looking at the
emergence and development of transport systems and
networks; personal transport methods and environmental
impact; designing and delivering national and
international transport systems; creating sustainable
transport networks.

8. Technology, Global Warming and Energy: assessing
the impact of technological advances on global warming;
the uses to which technology can be put; checking and
safeguarding energy efficiency; the deployment of
technology to utilise alternative sources of energy;
technological longevity and the problems of dated and
discarded technologies.

Perspectives are sought from people engaged in actor
network theory, agriculture and agricultural economics,
city and regional planning, conflict resolution and
mediation, critical geography, environmental studies,
human development and ecology, industrial relations and
design, philosophy and ethics, political science and
international affairs, public policy and advising, social
sciences, sociology of science, theology, urban studies,
western European studies; people in the public and
private sectors who are involved in planning and project
development, policy-making and implementation, and
negotiation and mediation at national and international
levels; people in Governmental, inter-governmental and
non-governmental organisations, voluntary sector bodies,
environmental charities and groups, business and
professional associations.

Papers will be considered on any related theme. 300 word
abstracts should be submitted by Friday 7th November
2002. Full draft papers should be submitted by
Wednesday 15th January 2003.

The conference is the second in an annual series of
research projects, run under the general banner 'Probing
the Boundaries'. It aims to create working 'encounter'
groups between people of differing perspectives,
disciplines, professions, and contexts. The project is
to be supported by an e-mail discussion group, resource
website, ISSN e-journal, and dedicated ISBN publication
series.

Papers from the first conference are being published in a
themed book. Selected papers accepted for and presented
at the conference will be published in themed volumes.
