As part of the 78th General Assembly of the United Nations’ Science Summit in New York, the Austrian Chapter of The Club of Rome is organising a three-hour session linking Earth4All and recent research on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a focus on Austria and Kenya. The goal of the project is to develop future visions, goals, and indicators driven by stakeholders through participatory research approaches with scientific analyses and arts-based practices. The research aims to provide inclusive scientific ideas and options for political and societal actions towards sustainable development, bridging the gap between economic, ecological, and social interests.
Earth4All has begun national implementation strategies with two pilot countries – Austria and Kenya. The session will introduce the Earth4All initiative and the scientific approaches behind the project. It will include three lectures, followed by moderated panels with representatives of the governments and other stakeholders from Kenya and Austria.
