The conference will be March 26-28, 2009 at Northern Virginia Community College, Sterling, Virginia. The theme is "Visions for Creating a Sustainable Future: Toward Transformational Change for a Collective World at Peace." We invite exploration of new paradigms and evaluation of existing ones as we explore topics, research, policy, and strategies for teaching and professional practice while educating
students and the community about the importance of preparing for a sustainable future. This can involve encouraging stabiltiy and change, cross-curricula themes, shared universal responsibility and understanding, mechanisms for public education, creation of global systems for collective intellegence, necessity of cooperation, the role of religions, creation of zones of peace, deliniation of shared values, and building national, cross-cultural and international understanding. We welcome submissions by professors, students, and independent scholars from any Social Science discipline, as well as History, Education, Environmental Science, and Information Technology.
Additionallly, we are calling for Student Papers and Presentations.
