This interdisciplinary workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss the post pandemic opportunities in various sectors of developing and emerging economies. As sustainability has become a focus of many industries during the pandemic and it is promoted by supra-governmental organisations as well as governments of developed countries. With the COP26 behind us, this workshop will provide a platform to discuss both theoretical developments and practical applications of a wider range of concepts such as circular economy, new green deals etc. based on Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.



Although a wider range of topics relevant to Sustainable Development Goals are welcome, the workshop would mainly focus on:

– Sustainable development goals for 2030 and their economic impact.

– European Union’s sustainable strategies and the potential consequences for countries around the Mediterranean Sea.

– How to achieve circular economy in post pandemic era

– Green Supply Chain approaches

– Exploring alternative climate friendly production and consumption approaches using latest available technologies

– Renewable Energy systems in local and regional context

– Sustainable and smart cities

– Ecosystems management in local and regional context
