I would like to thank to you and all your colleagues that contributed for the excellent organization; appropriate selection of interesting topics in all thematic areas, friendly atmosphere, and magnificent conference dinner.

I believe that not only me, but also all participants will keep unforgettable impressions from the Conference in Rome, which will serve as a high standard for the future ECIS conferences.

The AIDEA 2017 National Conference – which hosted almost 650 academics from all over Italy – has been a fruitful forum for all members of the economics scientific community to discuss and exchange ideas about the future trends of Business Economics and Management Studies, especially in light of the profound and disruptive transformations in technological, political and socio-economic contexts in recent decades. A dialogue for an interdependent, transverse vision among the various Business Economics and Management disciplines that, despite their specificity, can receive inspiration from the unitary and still relevant common matrix.

IAPS 2018 International Association People Environment Studies 9 - 13 July 2018, Università Roma Tre University

The theme of the 25th International Association People – Environment Studies – IAPS 2018 Rome Conference follows coherently with the themes of the last Conferences in Lund/Alnarp, Timisoara, Glasgow and Leipzig. The theme of the last IAPS conference underlined the importance of the everyday life contexts to understand people-environment relations. In Rome 2018 we go further along this thematic stream, and focus on the transition processes needed to achieve more sustainable societies at the global, regional and local level. The theme we propose is therefore referred to the “Transitions to sustainability, lifestyles and human wellbeing: cultural, environmental and political challenges”.
