DATE OF THE EVENT: from 25 to 27 OCTOBER, 2023
On September 22 and 23, 2016, the inaugural Polish-Colombian International Symposium took place in Warsaw, Poland. The primary objective of the symposium was to address development-related issues and explore potential solutions. Following its success, the second edition of this event was held in the same city in 2018. Three years later, in 2021, the third edition was organized. Presently, in 2023, the symposium is once again being held, contributing to the field of development studies. Understanding current development trends is crucial, considering that the discourse of the majority of governments primarily focuses on growth rather than holistic development.
- To explore, both theoretically and practically, the challenges associated with sustainable development in rural and urban areas, including the issues, processes, and prospects involved in this field.
- To examine the crisis of the environmental paradigm within the global context.
- To critically reflect on the concepts of development and sustainability, as well as emerging proposals, within the context of modernity.
- The symposium will span over a period of 3 days dedicated to paper presentations. From all the papers presented, the most representative ones will be selected to create a compilation for publication in a book.
- Guidelines for paper presentations: Only submissions in Spanish and English will be accepted. Papers should not exceed ten letter-size pages while maintaining the quality expected of a scientific text.
- All participants who confirm their attendance in advance and remain present throughout the entire three-day event will receive a certificate of attendance.
