Traditional Wisdom and Modern Knowledge for the Earth's Future
The Conference will be focused on one of the central problems of contemporary geography: the combination of traditional and modern knowledge in reaching the objectives of sustainable development at the local and global scale. The venue of the conference - Kyoto, one of the most ancient cities and the former capital of Japan, symbolizes a synthesis of traditions and modernity. It will be an excellent way to get better acquainted with the Japanese geography and geographers and learn more about this country in participating in field excursions and tours.
