Frontier Innovation of Lignocellulose and Humanosphere Sciences Towards Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Change Mitigation
The 17 goals of sustainable development have been adopted by all the United Nations Member States since 2015. Not only providing a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for the people and the planet, but the agenda also identifies that the global acts to end the poverty, to tackle climate change and to preserve our biosphere shall be performed together with the strategies to improve health and education, to reduce inequality, and to stimulate economic growth.
The urgent call for actions is translated into several outreach activities to provide a substantial support in achieving the sustainable development goals by all the countries-developed and developing-in a global partnership. Science, technology, and innovation, together with the climate change mitigation, are two thematic-ongoing activities alongside other sectors such as urbanization, transportation, water, ocean, waste management, and energy. To successfully deliver these roles, more specific policies such as bioeconomy is presented to reinforce the strong connection and to ensure the balance among the society, economy, and the sustainable environment. In a global context, the bioeconomy strategy connects the sustainable use of renewable biological resources for food, bio-based products, and bioenergy while maintaining the safety and restoration of biodiversity, ecosystems, and natural habitat. In a more scientific context, the utilization of bio-based products or the conversion of lignocellulose biomass into bioproducts or bioenergy develop substitutes to fossil-based materials that are biodegradable, renewable, recyclable, and more economical. These efforts create an emerging sector in the field of biomass conversion and bio-based smart materials that will lead to sustainable development of this industry.
In a broader framework and perspective related to the sustainable development goal alongside the climate change mitigation is the Humanosphere concept; the spheres that support human activities, including the human living environment, the earth siennce, the forest-sphere, the atmosphere and the space environment. Humanosphere role is to investigate the present and future problems and to explore innovative technology that will contribute to establishing a sustainable society in harmony with the natural environment. It is also committed to change the behavior of human societies from the conventional ones that depends heavily on the fossil fuel energy emphasizing more into understanding material cycling and energy flow within Humanosphere. It provides accurate diagnose of the current conditions, then evaluates and forecasts the future of Humanosphere conditions. The commitment is to strive for sustainable societies for future generations by finding solutions to stop the deterioration of Humanosphere.
As a scientific community, we aim to design and to assess effective solutions for a sustainable future as one of the actions we can actively contribute to the sustainable development goals and climate change mitigation. Therefore, our step-up action is to gather all the researchers, scientists, academia, and practitioners in the field of biomass conversion, bio-based smart materials, forest and environment, atmospheric science, and socio-bioeconomy, enhancing mitigation for climate change in a two-day conference and symposium entitled “The 1st International Conference of Lignocellulose in conjunction with the 10th International Symposium of Sustainable Humanosphere.” In these events, they will share their latest discovery in the field of science and technology by providing a strong knowledge basis with confidence that their works are built on a sound understanding of the global issues. The event is anticipated to be the largest forum for the scientific community as a platform to promote their frontier innovation towards sustainable development goals and climate change mitigation.
The objectives of ICON-LIG and ISSH are:
To frontier innovation towards sustainable development goals and climate change mitigation by enhancing knowledge sharing among researchers, scientists, academia, and practitioners in the field of biomass conversion, bio-based smart materials, forest and environment, earth science, atmospheric science, socio-bioeconomy, and other related disciplines.
To encourage international collaboration by serving as a platform for the participants to establish a scientific network related to their disciplines.
To provide an update on the possible scientific actions to assess effective solutions for a sustainable future.
