11TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INDUSTRIAL ECOLOGY
About the conference ISIE2023
It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 11th International Conference on Industrial Ecology (ISIE2023) of the International Society for Industrial Ecology, to be held from July 2 to 5, 2023. Following a lengthy delay caused by Covid19, we’re excited that the conference makes its way back to Leiden, the Netherlands, where the first ISIE conference was held in 2001.
The theme of the conference is Transitions in a world in turmoil. The way we use energy and resources in our present system is not sustainable. Major changes are necessary in our energy system to make it climate-neutral. At the same time our use of land, water and material resources needs to change dramatically to become sustainable. To avoid further deterioration of nature and our environment and resource supply constraints we must move toward a circular economy, while at the same time ensuring equitable transitions. The Covid19 crisis and the Russian aggression in Ukraine have caused have changed the geopolitical context in which these transitions will have to take place. This offers both challenges and opportunities.
