Planned section of the conference

i. Sustainability models (mathematical, IT, statistical, technical aspects)
Today, sustainability is a trendy, fancy, very wide-ranging concept, but after a closer look, it contains hard mathematical, IT, statistical, and technical solutions. It starts with the assessment of the situation, which is the measurement, data collection, then data processing and network analysis. After that, it is planning of the model supported by simulation and analysis. And finally, it is the development of scenarios, the realization of which is a series of decisions supported by decision theory techniques. In our section, we are looking forward to presentations, models and best practices in any area of the above-mentioned topics.

ii. Adoption of sustainable practices in agri-food chain 1-2.
(Side event of the conference consisting of two sessions)
Adoption of sustainable practices in the agri-food chain has become a key point of Common Agricultural Policy. Sustainable technologies are supported by EU's rural development policies since they play a relevant role in producing positive social, economic and environmental externalities. However, farmers accept without criticism widespread traditional technologies and practices as established and unquestionable, so they react to any new practices negatively. The aim of our side event sessions is to explore the key drivers and the barriers of adoption of sustainable practices.

iii. Searching for management and leadership excellence in age of sustainability.
The section combines academic and business insights about leadership, leadership excellence, application of sustainability techniques, and personal attitudes about sustainability. We would like to summarize the critical elements of the new age value chain and put them into business actions to achieve practical outcomes. The main aim is to collect and present approaches, tools and practices for developing sustainable value chains from the viewpoint of leaders and CEOs.

iv. External and internal resources of sustainable regional economic growth and development
Global financial capital has played an important role in all transition economies. The economic transition has created the legal and structural frameworks for the dependent mode of re-integration into the EU and into the global division of labour. The most important historical dependencies of the CEE region, such as financial, technological and market ones, remain constant. This is complemented with the large energy dependency of CEECs on Russia. For the regions of CEE the development of sustainable trajectories are necessary in order to foster alternative autonomous development by decreasing external dependencies. The session is looking for papers discussing regional impacts of FDI, innovation and the local embeddedness of a particular localities into the global value chains (competitiveness of local SMES). Papers are also welcome in local economic development based on endogenous growth factors, territorial capital and local resource development including renewable energy sources.

v. Sustainable consumption behaviour
Consumers are key players in driving sustainable production and play a central role in sustainable development as well. Our session deals with consumers from two points of view. On the one hand consumer behaviour, attitudes and preferences will be discussed, on the other hand, the focus is on different approaches for protecting consumers from misleading information on sustainability in areas such as labelling and advertising.

vi. Environmental management, corporate social responsibility, company sustainability tools
(Side event of the conference, jointly organized with KÖVET, the Hungarian Association for Sustainable Economies)

ISO 14001 and EMAS, environmental and sustainability reports, eco-mapping, green offices – just some tools with a history of over 30 years. The CSR (corporate social responsibility) “movement" is somewhat younger, but also has faded out somewhat quickly. Is there a survival/revival potential in these “triple-bottom-line” solutions (J. Elkington), will they be reborn with industry 4.0 solutions, or should we send our painful but inevitable condolence? We will discuss these exciting issues with some key foreign experts and representatives of leading international companies operating in Hungary.

vii. New Economic Visions
(Side event of the conference, jointly organized with INEM, the International Network for Environmental and Ethical Management)

Unsustainable development prompts a need for a paradigm change in economics. Profit maximization, the invisible hand and fiscal policies seem to be unable to solve ecological degradation, increasing inequality: real markets are far from the textbooks' free competition. Some thinkers envision new economic visions and models. Doughnut economics (Kate Raworth), Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie (Christian Felber), Human Economics (Gergely Tóth) are just some ideas for the paradigm change. In our session we would like to learn about these contemporary ideas and authors in details and expect lectures to review one of these or other new economic visions, models. A good start for the journey would be the Evonomics - The Next Evolution in Economics magazine.
