Management of Sustainable Development

The Journal of „Lucian Blaga“ University of Sibiu

Open access

Sustainable development is a universal concept that has presently become the fundamental and primary goal of all peoples inhabiting the planet thus requiring convergent, efficient and effective actions undertaken in the future.
The sustainable development society is that king of society that has evolved within the society and shapes the socio-economic system in such a way that raw materials and material resources as well as all life-supporting elements should be properly preserved in order to ensure the meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

The modern concept of sustainable development is a complex one relying on the following components: economic development, social development, environmental protection, cultural development and preservation, as well as national, regional and international security assurance.

The twenty-first century marks the transition from the industrial society to the cultural-intensive and knowledge-based society.

The struggle for sustainable development can be interpreted as systemic and convergent action aimed at: alleviating and doing away with poverty, pollution, work-related uncertainty, migration, expansion of urbanization, financial and economic crises, and last but not least preserving traditional values.

It is imperative nowadays for specialists from all fields to engage in the active promotion and support of sustainable development by means of performant management.

The Journal of Management of Sustainable Development provides an academic opportunity for the publication of research paper submitted by specialists, analyses and debates regarding all issues entailed by sustainable development evolution and management, throughout all fields of activity.
Therefore we address an invitation to specialists for all fields of activity all over the world to join our scientific enterprise meant to promote the concept of sustainable development.

Management of Sustainable Development is the most representative Romanian scientific journal with international impact and visibility, operating under the aegis of Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu - Romania and the Romanian Academic Society of Management - set up in 2007 as a non-political, non-governmental, non-profit think tank, firmly rooted on fully democratic principles, with the aim of professionalizing Romanian management abiding by the rules of competence and performance.

The Journal of Management of Sustainable Development provides an academic opportunity for the publication of research paper submitted by specialists, analyses and debates regarding all issues entailed by sustainable development evolution and management, throughout all fields of activity.

The European Union strategy for sustainable development highlights the investment in the human, social, economic and environmental capital as a long-term prerequisite for the assurance of economic prosperity, social cohesion, quality employment and higher environmental quality.

Sustainable development should be considered a continuous process of improvement, learning and training without dismissing its defining principles, i.e.: primum non nocere (do not harm the environment, first and foremost), preserving and enhancing the biomass, biodiversity and bioproductivity, as well as sustainable use of economic resources, economic efficiency and social equity.

Education is the most effective means available to society in order to generate a global critical mass for converging actions - essential for the sustainable development on our planet, nevertheless the goals have not been reach in this field either. Access to educaiton is a sine-qua-non condition of the young generation`s participation to the socio-economic and cultural life at all levels of society. Undoubtedly, education cannot solve all the problems of contemporary or future life, however it may contribute to the initiative of creating new relations among the members of society in view of increasing compliance with the requirements of sustainable development.

Investment in education and health services, fighting against corruption, development of socio-economic strategies, supporting investments, encouraging research-development activities in view of an efficient consumption of feedstock and energy, effective transportation by means of proper infrastructure thus lead to saving fuel and diminishing pollution, all these represent undeniable methods for sustainable growth.

Therefore we address an invitation to specialists for all fields of activity all over the world to join our scientific enterprise meant to promote the concept of sustaianble development.
