One World, One Health

Welcome to the International Conference on Embodied Cognitive Science (ECogS 2023) - What is Well-being? Comparative Perspectives.

Our conference is inspired by the vision of building a sustainable society founded on mental, physical, and environmental health. Embracing an embodied approach, we explore the interactions between the mind, body, and environment, providing valuable insights into the interwoven threads that unite these domains.

These ideas also serve as the cornerstone of the newly established OIST Global Bioconvergence Center of Innovation. The center aims to promote research and advancement in the areas of a Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, and Healthy Environment organised around the guiding vision of One World, One Health. In doing so, OIST hopes to contribute to achieving the goal of Good Health and Well-Being, as proclaimed among the 15 sustainable development goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations in 2015.

By encouraging discussions and facilitating collaborative opportunities, ECogS 2023 aims to foster a deeper understanding of well-being among scholars who actively contribute to this topic from diverse disciplinary perspectives.

With warmest regards,
ECogS 2023 Organizing Committee
