Call for papers: The International Academic Consortium for Sustainable Cities (IACSC), 08/09 2012, Thailand

Mission and Ideals

The International Academic Consortium for Sustainable Cities (IACSC) was established in 2009 with the express purpose of fostering closer cooperation between academic institutions and their cities. Its holistic focus spans three main areas of study – ‘Urban Planning/Urban Studies’, ‘Public Health’ and ‘Environment’. Through dialogues, discussions, research partnerships and other projects, IACSC members have been able to engage fruitfully among themselves and with other organizations across Asia and beyond.

IACSC’s annual symposium also offers a platform for specialists to interact and knowledge share with NGOs, businesses and city policy makers, as well as fellow researchers. Together, these activities serve to bring the gap between research and practice, expanding the opportunities for positive cross-sectoral collaborations in response to the challenging realities of cities in the 21st century.
