The conference follows the previous conferences on Integral Green Economy in 2013, 2014 and 2017 in Slovenia and the release of the Gower and Routledge volume Integral Green Slovenia in June 2016.
In addition to presentations of authors of the Integral Green Slovenia book and other innovators for sustainable development from Slovenia, more than dozen of participants from international TRANS4M community will be actively sharing applications of the integral approach in Africa, Middle East and other World Regions.
