One World – Many Cultures
Contemporary challenges of social and economic development
7-8 November 2013
We have a pleasure to invite students and academics to the conference, which will be held at the University premises, in the centre of Bydgoszcz, at 55-57 Toruńska Street. The Conference is a continuation of international meetings organised annually by Kujawy and Pomorze University in Bydgoszcz. Ever since the first edition in 2010, “One World – Many Cultures” Conferences have been meant as an opportunity for intercultural dialogue and as a forum for exchanging ideas concerning today’s global problems. In an attempt to encourage interdisciplinarity, the meetings bring together a wide range of economists, lawyers, educators, theologians, cultural experts, political scientists, sociologists, historians, media specialists and representatives of other fields of arts and sciences.
The conference is a clear invitation for everyone, regardless of their belief system, to discuss the problems of contemporary world from cultural, legal and economic perspectives. It may also serve as a platform for intercultural learning about a wide range of areas of co-existence of diverse human communities in an increasingly globalized world.
Sessions will be divided into the following panels:
- Religion and culture towards the threats of contemporary society
- Economic and social dilemmas of market economy
- The present in legal and administrative dimension
- Technical civilization of the 21st century
- The future of education in the light of the crises of contemporary world
The November meeting will be an excellent occasion to exchange views on the essential problems of contemporary world as well as will initiate a dialogue of the representatives of scientific and business spheres. Among others, International Consortium of Rectors and Presidents of Universities and Higher Education Institutions will facilitate this. The aim of establishing the Consortium is providing an opportunity for wide cooperation between higher education institutions and their economic, cultural, sports etc. environment. The Rectors and Presidents of the universities with which Kujawy and Pomorze University cooperates as well as the representatives of state and local government, including these from Italy, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Ukraine, Greece, have already declared their participation in the meetings of the Consortium.
The languages of the conference are Polish, English and Russian.
Articles, following a positive review, will be published in a ranked monograph.
