When we introduce something extraneous in the natural cycle which positively harms life and creates imbalance, it is known as pollution. Environmental pollution is one of the biggest problems the world faces today. It is an issue that troubles us economically, physically and everyday of our lives.

The grand industrial development, the successful green revolu­tion, the transport explosion, the rapid growth of cities and haphazard management of natural resources, have adversely affected environmental balance. There is no doubt that modern technological development has been the main instrument in polluting our air, oceans and rivers, etc.

The contamination of the environment is also being linked to some of the diseases that are around currently. Yet, most people do not know about this problem. This shows that environmental pollution is becoming an increasingly worse problem that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible, not only for the betterment of the environment but also for the people that live in it.

Many factors are involved in the fact for why environmental pollution has become such a large issue in the world. This first International Conference on 'Worldwide Issues of Environmental Pollution' aims to provide a multi-disciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of many issues affecting status of the Environment today.

The meeting will encourage trans-disciplinary communication on issues related to the pollution of environment and its exploitation by society. The conference is motivated by the need to bridge the gap between the broad spectrum of social sciences and humanistic disciplines and specialists in physical sciences, biology, environmental sciences, health sciences and others.
