IIASA Director General John Schellnhuber will host a lecture on "Surviving the Anthropocene and Securing Human Well-being in the 21st Century" at the Austrian Embassy in Washington D.C. during his visit to the United States. 

In this exclusive event, organized by the Embassy of Austria in cooperation with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), John Schellnhuber will discuss the challenges posed by the Anthropocene – the age when human activity started to have a significant impact on the planet's climate and ecosystems – and strategies for securing human wellbeing in the face of unprecedented environmental changes. Innovative solutions and pathways towards a more sustainable future will also be explored.

The lecture will be followed by an Austrian wine reception. The U.S. Committee for IIASA of the National Academy of Sciences invites everyone to participate in the discussion and meet the new Director General of IIASA.
