The conference theme of Change, Continuity and Diversity: Perspectives on Sustainability for Asia seeks to explore such issues and their links to the notion of sustainability through the combined and holistic lenses of an interdisciplinary approach. This conference will be held in Hiroshima, Japan, during the 68th Hiroshima Peace Memorial.
Remembrance events and tours are held during the conference, including a guided tour of Peace Park on August 6, which is the anniversary of the atomic bombing.
