Cognitive Approach, Social Ethics & Sustainability

At Woxsen University, the School of Liberal Arts and Humanities have been established with the aim of developing the critical thinking abilities of the learners through interdisciplinary education, creativity-inducing engagements, and socially conscious endeavours. The idea has been to provide academic freedom and create an intellectual ecosystem that encourages diversity, inclusivity, and global awareness.

In accordance with these aims of the school which aspires to provide a platform for the inquisitive and exploratory-minded, the School of Liberal Arts and Humanities at Woxsen University is organizing its first international conference.

This is the first Woxsen Conference on Sustainability and Cognitive approach for a flourishing world and it intends to share commitments and ideas for taking immediate actions to seize opportunities for meeting the social challenges of the 21st Century.

The cognitive approach encompasses the entire realm of human existence. From learning, information processing, and carrying on complex mental activities to language acquisition, communication, coping with the social environment and making the decision for daily living; every phenomenon of modern society is getting included in the cognitive sphere. Leading a meaningful, sustainable and productive life, be it on a personal or professional front, the contribution of cognitive science to modern society has become undeniable.

We invite students, research scholars, social science researchers, academicians, policymakers, and professionals to attend this conference. All participants are encouraged to submit their abstracts for academic poster and paper presentations on the lead and associated conference themes.
