Call For Papers

Environmental deterioration, climate change, biodiversity loss, resource scarcity, as well as inequality and persistent poverty, are all linked to, and driven by, globally unsustainable production and consumption patterns and systems. As the traditional rules of the economic and financial system come increasingly into question, so do the impacts of the expanding international consumer class. Developing countries are working to overcome poverty by growing their economies, while the middle classes in countries such as India and China are adopting increasingly material-intensive lifestyles.

环境恶化,气候变化,生物多样性丧失,资源的稀缺性,以及不均等和持续的贫困,都与全球不可持续的生产和消费模式系统相关甚至由其直接引起。随着传统的经济和金融体系的规则越来越多地被质疑和讨论,正在扩大中的国际消费层造成的影响也逐渐凸显出一些问题。发展中国家正在通过经济的增长努力克服贫困,但是很多中产阶级,例如在印度和中国,越来越多地采用材料密集型的生活方式。

Since the 1992 World Summit on Sustainable Development, the transition to sustainable production and consumption (SPaC) systems has been heralded as a global priority. Accordingly, the United Nations General Assembly launched in 2012 the 10 Year Framework of Programs on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP). In addition, the International Human Dimensions Programme (IHDP) launched its ten-year Future Earth research plan. The GRF–SPaC global conference will examine these and other approaches to produce the trans-disciplinary knowledge and actions needed for the coming decade.
从1992年的世界可持续发展峰会,向可持续生产和消费系统(SPAC)过渡开始作为一个全球性的优先议题。因此,联合国大会于2012年推出的可持续消费和生产10年方案框架(10YFP)。此外,国际人文尺度计划(IHDP)推出了十年的‘地球未来’研究计划。GRF–SPaC全球会议将检验这些以及其他的方法,以便为未来十年提供必要的多学科的知识和行动。

Over the past two decades, extensive research regarding SPaC has been carried out covering issues such as: the circular and green economy, the attitude-behavior gap, collaborative consumption, sustainable finance and investment, sustainable procurement, and green supply-chain management. Other work has sought to identify the underlying drivers of contemporary consumer culture and to examine the inherent problems with the prevailing economic growth paradigm. Emerging from this activity is appreciation for the complex challenges of systemic change, though actual progress is hindered by our limited comprehension of the multidimensional barriers that impede diffusion of more sustainable lifestyles and consumer practices. Further inquiry is necessary to understand these complexities and to more effectively guide the transition from research to policy.

在过去的二十年中,SPaC已经进行了广泛的研究。其研究涉及到的课题包括:圆形和绿色经济,态度与行为间的差距,协作消费,可持续的融资和投资,可持续采购,绿色供应链管理等问题。其他工作包括寻求识别当代消费文化的深层驱动,以及检查现行经济增长模式的内在问题。虽然我们对多维障碍的有限理解妨碍了实际进展,比如其阻碍了向可持续的生活方式和消费方式发展扩散,但这个活动体现了我们对系统性变革的复杂挑战性的认识。我们还需要进一步的探究,既是为了理解向可持续生活方式和消费方式转变的复杂性,也是为了更有效地引导可持续生活方式和消费方式从学术层面到政策层面的转变。

This conference provides a unique opportunity for Chinese and Asian SPaC researchers and practitioners to join together with the others in the global community. The Second Biennial GRF–SPaC Conference will be a forum to present and discuss new research outcomes from the Asia-Pacific region as well as from Latin America, Africa, Europe, and North America. The conference will take stock of new issue framings and explore emerging research questions. The scope will cover local and global issues and interconnections across scales, connecting regions and researchers. One of the aims is to strengthen the international community of SPaC researchers and practitioners and to connect them with knowledge users in business, social movements, and policy making.

本次会议为中国和亚洲在可持续生产和消费系统的研究者和从业者提供了一个与全球社区联系的独特机会。第二次GRF-SPaC会议将是包括来自亚太地区以及拉丁美洲,非洲,欧洲和北美互相介绍和讨论新的研究成果的一个论坛。本次会议将采集新的问题构架和探索新的研究问题。范围将覆盖本地和全球性问题并且连接不同区域和地区的研究者。其中的一个目标是要加强可持续生产和消费系统研究者和从业者的国际社区,并把他们与商业知识用户,社会变迁和政策制定相联系。

The conference will entail several keynote presentations by internationally renowned scholars and policy makers, academic papers and discussions, and dialogue sessions between researchers and practitioners. The format will integrate across regional networks and seek to forge global collaborations with other global networks such as the Greening of Industry Network, the International Sustainable Development Research Conference (ISDRC19), the International Society for Industrial Ecology, and the Earth System Governance Project.
本次会议将包括国际知名学者和政策制定者的主题演讲,学术论文和讨论,以及研究人员和从业者之间的专题讨论。会议形式将是跨区域的网络整合,并寻求与其他全球性的组织建立一个全球性的合作,比如绿化行业网络,国际可持续发展研究会议(ISDRC19),工业生态学国际学会与地球系统治理项目。
