European Center of Sustainable Development


ECSDEV is an international, cross-disciplinary center covering all aspects of the environmental impacts of socio-economic development, founded in Rome on February 10, 2010.
The definition of sustainable development follows the Brundtland Commission (1987) as: "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs".
Concerned with the composite interactions between development and environment, its purpose is to seek ways and means for achieving sustainability in all human activities aimed at such development. Coverage includes interactions among society, environment, and their implications.
Research at ECSDEV is integrated with scholars in collaboration with faculties throughout European and Mediterranean Universities.  The relevance and validity of the research is enhanced through cooperation and agreements with Academics and Industry associates, with special attention to developing countries.
