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.
Capitalism and sustainability.
The unsustainable distinction between natural and human histories.
Rights, agency, justice, and politics in an age of climate change,
Human responsibility towards life.
Transfer of technology in defence and electronic industry
Optical fibre and environment
Environmental facets of use of Li-ion batteries
Climate change and geopolitical impact
Right to live in a clean environment vis-a-vis health
Impact of climate change on people living on high altitude
Climate change and food crisis
