8th ASMSS @Okinawa, 8 / 8 - 10, 2024

The Annual Symposium on Management and Social Sciences

Sustainable Energy and Social Inclusion : Innovation, Impact, and Co-building the Future

IIt is our great pleasure to announce that 8th ASMSS (The Annual Symposium on Management and Social Sciences) will take place during August 8-10, 2024. in OKINAWA, JAPAN. This time, ASMSS set a special session on "Sustainable Energy and Social Inclusion : Innovation, Impact, and Co-building the Future."

Our world is at a critical juncture where the demand for energy continues to rise, and the consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly evident. In response, it is imperative to explore innovative solutions that not only meet our energy needs but also contribute to social inclusion and environmental sustainability.

The theme underscores the importance of integrating sustainable energy practices with a focus on social inclusion. By bringing together experts, researchers, policymakers, and industry leaders, we aim to foster a dynamic platform for discussions on groundbreaking innovations, their real-world impact, and the collaborative effort needed to shape a sustainable future. Through engaging discussions, shared insights, and collaborative initiatives, we believe this conference will serve as a catalyst for positive change. We encourage participants to actively contribute to the discourse, sharing their knowledge and experiences to collectively address the challenges posed by the intersection of sustainable energy and social inclusion.

By co-building the future, we envision a society where energy solutions are not only technologically advanced but also socially inclusive, ensuring that the benefits of progress are accessible to all. We invite you to be a part of this transformative journey, where your contributions will play a crucial role in shaping a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive future for generations to come. Together, let us explore new horizons and pave the way for a brighter and greener future.
