Event Structure

The “1st LATIN AMERICAN SYMPOSIUM ON SUSTAINABILITY” will be organised in two main strands:

Strand 1: the posters

Participants and organisations will be able to put-up posters describing their works and projects and to distribute the relevant information to the participants. The posters will be the backbone of the event and will allow close, one-to-one contacts between the participants and the exhibitors.

Strand 2: the presentations

A set of presentations, divided into four main themes will be organised, distributed over parallel sessions dealing with some of the issues of strategic value in the field of sustainability. These are:

1. Institutional organisation, structures, and corporate policies;

2. Approaches towards resource efficiency (e.g. energy, water, wastes, materials);

3. Community and Stakeholder relations;

4. Information, Communication, Education, and Training.

The plenary and parallel sessions, as well as the social events, will provide participants with an outstanding opportunity to interact face-to-face, network and learn about the latest ideas, projects, and practices.

The “1st LATIN AMERICAN SYMPOSIUM ON SUSTAINABILITY” will be held on August 22nd-24th, 2022, on the Campus of PUCPR in Curitiba, Brazil.
