The changes in the earth’s environment due to human intervention in the context of modernism have raised questions about the healthy existence of man in the future. In this scenario, environmental or green literature, as an academic discourse, allows us to reflect on and interpret our existence as co-inhabitants of this wonderful planet. This conference is an effort to explore the new branch of literature that provides us the lens to re-realize our primal connection to nature—a relationship that seems to have been forgotten by all of us.

This conference intends to bring together researchers, educators, and students to share ideas and experiences and to interact with their intricate ideas and emotions in a more comprehensive and immersive way. The conference will feature keynote speeches, plenary talks, and paper presentations. We welcome research paper submissions from scholars, educators, and practitioners from various fields, including literature, films, and the visual arts. This conference aims to provide a forum for exchanging creative ideas and practices related to the environment, fostering cross-disciplinary collaborations, and inspiring new research and pedagogical approaches.

The conference will be held online and will be open to attendees worldwide. It will provide a platform for participants to explore a range of topics related to the environment, including, but not limited to:
