The 6th Asian Conference on the Arts, Humanities and Sustainability – Thursday and Friday, August 29-30, 2019 in Hiroshima, Japan»
ACAHS 2019 Welcome
We welcome you to join us in Hiroshima, Japan on Thursday and Friday, August 29-30, 2019 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan for the 6th Asian Conference on the Arts, Humanities and Sustainability. ACAHS 2019 is being jointly held alongside the 6th Asian Conference on the Social Sciences and Sustainability (ACSUS 2019).
Last year, ACAHS preceded the annual Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony; however, we have decided to hold ACAHS at the end of August when temperatures are more reasonable and travel costs are lower. All attending participants will have an opportunity for travel around Hiroshima, including its two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Peace Park and the Shrine Island of Miyajima (Itsukushima).
Please note that the number of oral and poster time slots is limited. The organizers will close submissions and registration when the event has reached its capacity.
About ACAHS 2019
The objective of ACAHS 2019 is to move away from the notion that sustainability only is an environmental issue. Actually, it is important to take a holistic perspective that embraces the critical relationship between ecological sciences and humanities. This is evident as human communities as well as their diverse biological and cultural heritage are increasingly threatened by mounting environmental and societal problems from climate change and exploitation of finite resources to the inequities and human costs of unsustainable practices and technologies. So our theme for this year’s event is New Pathways and we hope you will consider submitting a proposal and joining us in Hiroshima for this important on the arts, humanities and sustainability.
We welcome proposals of 250 words in English by Friday, July 12, 2019. Click on the Link Below to Submit your Proposal Today!
