In the complex fabric of our contemporary world, the intersection between the global economy and environmental dynamics emerges as a pivotal focal point. Upon reflection on the interplay between these two forces, it is evident that the global economy, a complex entity driven by interconnected industries and evolving trade practices, stands at a critical crossroads. Decisions made today within this economic framework reverberate through generations, shaping the trajectory of nations and influencing the delicate balance of our natural environment.

The undeniable prosperity brought about by our economic endeavors has, however, come at a cost – a cost measured in terms of severe environmental consequences. Climate change, pollution, and resource depletion serve as blatant indicators of the toll our current economic practices have taken on the planet. This exploration requires an honest appraisal of the environmental impact of prevalent practices, acknowledging that each facet, from industrial processes to consumer behavior, contributes to a larger narrative of environmental degradation.

The imperative to transition toward modern sustainable economic practices lies at the core of this reflection. Recognizing that traditional models of development are often incompatible with long-term ecological well-being is a crucial starting point. The focus is on fostering conversations about reshaping economic paradigms, emphasizing sustainability as a cornerstone for future prosperity.

Adopting sustainable economic practices is imperative for the survival of our planet. The aim is to bring together diverse perspectives, ranging from economic theorists to environmental scientists, not for discussions but with the collective intent of designing a roadmap toward a harmonious coexistence of economic growth and environmental preservation.

Embedded within these considerations are examples of positive changes and technological advances that offer glimpses of a more sustainable future. The shift towards renewable energy sources, innovative circular economy models, and eco-friendly manufacturing processes serve as inspiration, illustrating that the marriage of economic development and environmental stewardship is not only possible but can be mutually reinforcing.

IEREK is announcing the first edition of the Suistanble economy and ecotechnology (SEE) conference as a call to action. As we navigate the complexities of the global economy and its relationship with the environment, SEE aim is to shape a future that is both prosperous and ecologically resilient. By collectively acknowledging the challenges, embracing sustainable practices, and drawing inspiration from technological advancements, we lay the foundation for a world where economic and environmental considerations coexist seamlessly. Welcome to the forefront of change.


SEE conference addresses the broad spectrum of eco-economics, focusing on sustainable growth and environmental preservation. The list of topics includes green finance, sustainable technologies, and circular economy models. Participants, including experts, policymakers, and industry leaders, will engage in discussions, workshops, and networking sessions to foster collaboration and innovation. Through these interactions, the conference aims to inspire actionable solutions for building a prosperous future that balances economic development with ecological stewardship.

Statement of Purpose:

SEE’s objective is to establish an interactive and interdisciplinary forum where attendees can explore cutting-edge developments, exchange creative perspectives, and collaboratively tackle the emerging complexities within the realms of environmental and economic dynamics. Through captivating keynote presentations, insightful workshops, and participatory dialogues, the conference seeks to cultivate an atmosphere of curiosity, cooperation, and forward-looking vision. As we navigate the intricate terrain where economics intersects with environmental concerns, our goal is to spark transformative insights and sustainable strategies. Join us in this intellectual voyage, where together we strive to shape a future that harmonizes economic progress with environmental stewardship.
