In recent years, the fact that cities, which are the center of increasing global economic mobility all over the world, have moved away from being healthy and livable environments with all the increasing negative interventions and the appearance of stacking islands (Agglomeration) reveals that the problem is multidimensional. Today, the increased negative effect of urbanization and related environmental pollution on natural values and human health has motivated all stakeholders of cities to act together towards the goal of “ecological city renewal and livable healthy city".
Ecologically based disciplines aim to maximize sustainable development by protecting and respecting living natural resources in urban ecosystems all over the world, especially in recent years by prioritizing interdisciplinary work. This congress aims to bring together multiple professional disciplines and underlines that looking at the problem from a holistic point of view can only be effective in reaching a solution and concrete results can be achieved.
"Twenty-first Century", imposes common responsibilities on all of us,
Because our footprint on NATURE is getting bigger every day.
TO THE EXTENT THAT POLLUTE NATURE GREAT, OUR SOULS ARE BEING POLLUTED.
Hz. Mevlana says that those who want trees ought to plant seeds.
So, because we make so many mistakes, we can quickly connect ourselves and our society with the truth through our experiences.
