About The Conference

Climate change raises significant social, environmental and legal challenges. The governance system applying to    climate change is complex and multi-level. A central issue in international law and policy is how countries of the world should allocate the burden of addressing global climate change. Countries around the world are taking important domestic actions to help tackle the issue of climate change.

In particular, we would like to think through the following issues and see how the human condition is being re-imagined today in humanistic studies:

  • Historical and political implications of the idea of the “Anthropocene”.
  • The problem of scale in the study of human societies, past, present, and future.

  • Human responsibility towards life.

  • Multiple facets of palm oil industry into environment protection
  • Environment and food habits
  • Use of nanotechnology
