World Forum 2012 in in Bioengineering, Ecology and Sustainability

Cascais • 19-22 September 2012

The theory of the four basic elements - water, soil, air, and fire, proposed by Empedocles (ca. 490–430 BC), remained commonly accepted for more than 2000 years. While science has improved dramatically, upon Empedocles’ notions, researchers today are often so specialized that they lose sight of the multiple elements. We are considering these last elements as they are manifestations in relation to:

• the current challenges and trends, in Bioengineering, Ecology and Sustainability Solutions;
• the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), to be held in Brazil on 4-6 June 2012, 20 years after the Rio Summit 1992 and 10 years after the Johannesburg Summit 2002.
