Panjab University is going to organize the Seventh Chandigarh Social Science Congress (CHASSCONG VII), on March 21-22, 2017. The theme of this year’s congress is “Achieving Sustainable Development Goals: Opportunities, Challenges and Strategies.” As we all know United Nations  has accepted 17 Sustainable Development Goals with specific targets to achieve within stipulated time. The common goal of SDGs that no one will be left behind,is a move towards equitable, egalitarian and inclusive society for all. It is a global call to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that people enjoy peace, get justice and prosper. It is not only the responsibility of scientists, policy makers, governing institutions to give us safe environment but we social scientists, scientists, NGOs have to join hands to explore opportunities and find strategies to protect our social, economic and environmental health.

It is in this backdrop the theme of CHASSCONG VII is framed. We are sure that you would not like to miss this opportunity to be a part of this global call to transform the world. Most of you would already be working on these topics and many of you would start now.

The event is spread over two days. Day 1 will have inaugural session and panel discussions. Day 2 will have paper presentations, quiz, poster making and essay writing competitions. Best Research Paper/ Poster presented/prepared by student(s)/Research Scholar(s) from each Department would be given a prize. Academic Committee of the Department would decide the best paper.

Let us all join hands to ‘Transform India-Transform World’.
