Measuring, Modelling and Evaluating Sustainability

To global challenges faced by humanity, whether social, economic or environmental highlights the need for a new development model more just and equitable, moving towards a sustainable society. This transition will require powerful tools and methodologies for measuring, modelling and assessment to help decision-making at global and local levels.

The 2nd International Conference on Sustainability Measurement and Modelling (ICSMM 2009) will become, again, an interacting forum for those organizations, institutions, and experts interested in Sustainability Measurement and Modelling issues; more generally, for those supporting decision-making processes.

Announced by the UNESCO Chair in Sustainability at the Technical University of Catalonia and the Spanish Observatory for Sustainability (SOS), the ICSMM 2009 will take place on November 5th and 6th 2009, in Terrassa (located 35 km from the city of Barcelona).
