International Conference on

Green Sustainable Technology and Management


Conference Tracks

Theme: Towards sustainable development and growth for a greener future

Track 1 : Health and Life Sciences


By the year 2050, it is estimated that our global population will likely reach up to 9 billion people. The challenge of sustainable development is to move forward in such a way that every single one of these people will be able to enjoy a substantial quality of life without having detrimental effects to our natural resources.

Sustainable development and growth are practices or strategic plans towards environmental responsibility, energy saving, and efficient usage of resources with the utmost consideration of the immediate and long-term benefits to Mother Nature and future generations’ well-being and good health. It is important because it is the development that meets the needs of healthy individuals and promotes well-being for people of all ages without compromising the future generations' quality of life and natural resources. This is applied to natural resource sectors such as urbanization, agriculture, infrastructure, energy use, water availability, environmental conservation, and biodiversity preservation. In addition, the health sector includes sustainable health care development, health technology, physical activity, healthy lifestyle and quality of life pertaining to all ages.

This conference aims to provide a platform for researchers, academicians, and experts from various fields to share their expertise or new findings and research that contributes to sustainable development. It will be an honor for INTI to be able to create this awareness and raise concerns on the importance of sustainability to ensure our future generations are able to live in a greener and more sustainable world.

Track 2 : Information Technology and Engineering


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established as a universal call t to end poverty, protect the environment, and improve the lives and prospects of people everywhere. This track will serve as a platform for multi-stakeholders such as academics, students, government agencies, policymakers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and industries to discuss issues related to Information Technology and Engineering in the context of the SDGs, especially pertaining to goals 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15 and 17. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the environment, and improve the lives and prospects of people everywhere. Organizations are now harnessing modern technology to offer new business models to help promote sustainability and raise the overall level of living for emerging multilateral people. There is an untapped opportunity to harness new and innovative technologies to accelerate the progress to achieve Global Goals that will broaden and deepen current action. Innovative engineering, focused on the use of existing or new knowledge for the creation and/or improvement of new services, processes, or products, will involve obtaining original results of high social or economic value, which respond to the challenges of sustainability and fit into current and future technological environments. IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), machine learning, Blockchain technology, 5G, robotics, and cloud computing are several technologies that are being leveraged to obtain solutions to achieve the SDGs. These technologies connect citizens around the world, monitor and track environmental impact, and optimize industrial inefficiencies in efforts to transform traditionally wasteful practices into sustainable and efficient means of operation. This track will serve as a platform for multi-stakeholders such as academics, students, government agencies, policymakers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and industries to discuss issues confronting Information Technology and Engineering in the context of the SDGs.

Track 3 : Education, Business and Management


Climate change, global warming, energy depletion, and other environmental concerns have prompted the development of green technology in recent years. Researchers think that as the degree of sustainable development rises, so will the economic and social systems. It will also have a significant future influence on sustainability. Human creativity and invention are marked by technological breakthroughs in modern civilization. However, such technologies have wreaked havoc on the environment on a local and worldwide scale. Green technology has a bright future in satisfying education, business, management, and economic sustainability requirements. However, environmental and social sustainability issues must be mutually reinforced. Before implementing any technological improvements, the environmental and economic effect of these technologies as well as their efficiency should be assessed. When economic and environmental growth are prioritized, it should be a solution where everyone benefits.
