AMAIUB faculty from the College of Administrative and Financial Sciences (CAFS) Dr. Arpita Dutta attended the conference on Management and Sustainability in Asia (COMSA) from April 28 to May 1, 2015 in Hiroshima, Japan.
Organized by the Pacific Rim Education for Sustainable Development Alliance Foundation, the conference aimed to effectuate the objectives of the United Nations Decade of Education for sustainable Development and the Millennium Development goals in 2015 and to increase the quality of life for the global community.
With the theme “Breaking Barriers,” the three-day event which coincided with the 70th Hiroshima Peach and Remembrance Commemoration, offered a unique platform for scholarly and applied conversations among a wide variety of stakeholders concerned with the continual challenge for academic researchers and policy makers.
Dr. Arpitta presented her paper on the effectiveness of the implementation of Green Technology for Sustainable Development. She stressed on the quality of life – the social, economic and environmental systems in a community. This global development has emerged as the most viable and practical model for human activity, which is particularly relevant in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The best part of the conference, the presenter was proud of, was the global recognition that AMA International University-Bahrain has an institutional research, and that some Japanese universities are interested on a collaborative research venture.
The conference wrapped up with a typical Japanese dinner, interactions with the different presenters from US, Denmark, Russia, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, and the host country Japan. This was followed by a city tour to Meijyamma, a world heritage site.
