This special issue comprises selected papers from the Proceedings of the 2nd World Sustainability Forum, an electronic conference that was held on the sciforum.net platform in November 2012. Sustainability and sustainable development cover environmental, social and economic dimensions and require a multi-disciplinary approach in order to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these and related areas. The 2nd World Sustainability Forum facilitated debates on theoretical and practical investigations, and allowed participants to "make a difference" through on-line discussions. Besides covering the three pillars of sustainable development, other areas were covered including environmental sustainability, corporate sustainability strategy, social values for a sustainable economy, renewable energy self-sufficiency, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, sustainable urban development, sustainable development policy and practice, sustainable entrepreneurship and sustainability innovation, remote sensing for sustainable management of land and biodiversity, and sustainable agriculture. Papers selected for this special issue were subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
