II Jornada Desarrollo Urbano sostenible en Alicante

Desde SEN estamos organizando la Segunda Jornada Desarrollo Urbano sostenible en la costa Mediterránea Alicante.

Actualmente estamos en ‘ciudades en transición’, donde representantes de asociaciones, ciudadanía, pequeñas y grandes empresas, y entidades públicas empiezan a tomar protagonismo en la ciudad que queremos.

Es por ello que realizaremos este encuentro, donde nos reuniremos para debatir y hablar de las soluciones que se están llevando a cabo. Además, tendremos la oportunidad de conocer que se está haciendo y quién lo representa, para hacer de Alicante una ciudad integradora, sostenible y más próspera para vivir.

En este evento tendremos la oportunidad de conocer QUE se está haciendo y QUIÉN lo representa, para hacer de Alicante un ciudad integradora, sostenible y más próspera para vivir. Os invitamos a ser parte del desarrollo urbano sostenible de nuestra ciudad.

El evento se estructura en cuatro partes:

09.30-10.00 Cafe- bienvenida

10:00 – 11.30 Mesas de debate

10:00 a 10:30 Los retos de una ciudad en la Costa Mediterránea
10:30 a 11:00 Potenciar nuestros recursos y cuidar nuestro consumo
11:00 a 11:30 Economía Circular e innovación una oportunidad decrecimiento económico

11:30 – 12:00 Cafe – networking

12:00 – 13:00 Talleres participativos

Energy and Sustainability 2019

8th International conference on Energy and Sustainability

Energy and Sustainability 2019 is the 8th International Conference in a very successful series which started in the New Forest, UK, home of the Wessex Institute in 2007; followed by meetings in Bologna (2009); Alicante (2011); Budapest (2013); Kuala Lumpur (2014); Medellin, Colombia (2015); and Seville (2017).

The world’s economy is fuelled by energy.  Depletion of resources and severe environmental effects resulting from the continuous use of fossil fuels has motivated an increasing amount of interest in renewable energy resources and the search for sustainable energy policies.

The changes required to progress from an economy mainly focussed on hydrocarbons to one taking advantage of sustainable renewable energy resources require considerable scientific research, as well as the development of new engineering systems.  Energy policies and management are of primary importance to achieve the development of sustainability and need to be consistent with recent advances in energy production and distribution.

In many cases, the challenges lie as much in the conversion from renewable energies (wind, solar etc) to useful forms (electricity, heat, fuel) at an acceptable cost including damage to the environment as in the integration of these resources into the existing infrastructure.

The diverse topics covered by the Conference involve collaboration between different disciplines in order to arrive at optimum solutions, including studies of materials, energy networks, new energy resources, storage solutions, waste to energy systems, smart grids and many others.


Air Pollution 2019

27th International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution

Air Pollution 2019 is the 27th Annual Meeting in the successful series of international conferences organised by the Wessex Institute dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution.

The meetings in this series have discussed and considered many important air pollution issues and the international nature of the attendees has ensured that the conference findings and conclusions enjoy a wide and rapid dissemination amongst the air pollution science and policy communities. Air pollution issues remain one of the most challenging problems facing the international community. The series has demonstrated the wide-spread nature of the air pollution phenomena and has explored in depth their impacts on human health and the environment.

The scientific knowledge derived from well-designed studies needs to be allied with further technical and economic studies in order to ensure cost effective and efficient mitigation. In turn, the science, technology and economic outcomes are necessary but not sufficient. Increasingly, the conference has recognized that the outcome of such research needs to be contextualized within well-formulated communication strategies that help policy makers and citizens to understand and appreciate the risks and rewards arising from air pollution management. Consequently, the series has enjoyed a wide range of high quality papers that develop the fundamental science of air pollution and an equally impressive range of presentations that places these new developments within the frame of mitigation and management of air pollution.

This important conference brings together contributions from scientists from around the world to present recent work on various aspects of air pollution phenomena. Notable in each of the conferences in this series has been the opportunity to foster scientific exchange between participants. Each meeting has provided a further opportunity for identifying new areas of air pollution science demanding collaborative investigation.


Water Resources Management 2019

10th International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management

The tenth International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management will present recent technological and scientific developments, associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources.

Water is essential for sustaining life on our planet and its uneven distribution is a source of permanent conflict. The growth of human population combined with the irregularity in precipitation and water availability may restrict even further the access to water in certain regions of the world. This problem is made more severe by anthropocentric activities that affect its quality.

The Conference provides a platform for professionals involved in water resources management to exchange knowledge and gain an insight into the state of the art in the current technology, techniques and solutions in sustainable water management as they have been developed and applied in different countries. Participants include a wide variety of stakeholders from research and academia, to industrial sectors as well as government organisations.
