The past five conferences have attracted more than 700 participants from Europe, Africa and Asia, with highly-qualified papers and posters. This time we are expecting more than two hundred participants for oral and poster presentations. The SUSTAIN conference originated from the need to provide an inter-disciplinary forum where the most serious problems affecting a sustainable future for human security can be discussed, in recognition of the fact that many future problems cannot be solved by a “siloed” approach.

The conference will address problems of primary importance for human security, discussing and proposing a more constructive and progressive approach to ensure future societal sustainability. The meeting will provide a common forum for a wide range of researchers and practitioners specialising in a range of subjects related to the conference themes.

The Sustainable Future for Human Security also includes the following objectives:

  • To provide a forum for international researchers community to discuss, share and exchange their latest research progress in relation with sustainable future issues.
  • To develop and promote a sustainable networking between participants to hold human securities and bridging ideas into policies and desired realities.
  • To broaden information access for scientific communities toward global scientific, technology, social, economics and engineering societies.
  • To empower Asian in general and South East Asia in particular for research collaboration, network and partnership among researcher communities and decision makers.


We are living in an important historical point. The rise of Asia had brought waves of optimism across Asian nations. This brings many opportunities to shape a sustainable future for human security in Asia. However, there are still many problems and challenges lie in various aspects and levels, from community to governance, from politics to economy, and from global to local.

The shift of pendulum generated some consequences; some of them lead to natural resources depletion, shortage of carbon-based energy, shortage of food and water, as well as over-utilization of natural and human resources. The future economic and technology heavily rely on either the proper utilization of Asian natural resources, or well-prepared human resources.

To create breakthroughs for ensuring the prosperous future of the Asian people, deep understanding of problems and the dynamics shaping them is at paramount importance. Thus, students and scholars are at the forefront of this process.

Learning from the advanced West is important. However, it is clear that “one size fits all” is not always applicable. Asia, with its unique and vibrant culture, history, and socio-political contexts, offers various different kinds of wisdom and solutions. It depends on us to answer this intellectual challenge. Thus, we believe that building a network of students and scholars working on various aspects and levels of challenges for the future of Asia with various academic background is an important step to find creative and fresh answers.

However, scholarly understanding of challenges and their creative answers to problems should not stop at books, journals, and conferences. They should inspire policies and actions, both by the government and civil society. We should create bridges to bring ideas to realities.

The SustaiN society and Indonesian Student association in Kyoto, Japan had been successfully carried out the 1st up to 4th SustaiN conference in Kyoto, Japan, and 5th in Bali, Indonesia.
