In a world facing global crises it is vital to connect and share our knowledge and experience. IIASA Director General Albert van Jaarsveld will kick off a series of public webinars that provide a platform for the science curious and enthusiasts, as well as science professionals and novices, to discuss the world's most pressing sustainability problems and systems approaches for a better future.

Through its research on the world’s most complex challenges, IIASA produces unique scientific insights and possible solutions to many of the critical challenges we face: What are the best ways to tackle the climate crisis? How can we protect biodiversity? What are the ways forward towards sustainable, resilient, just, and equitable societies?  

A new public webinar series will provide a virtual platform to get to know the experts at IIASA and to share research, opportunities, knowledge, and experiences, and foster new connections.

Each webinar will tackle an urgent sustainability issue, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, or increasing desertification. Together we will explore the challenges and possible solutions and look at how systems thinking can enable us to design more effective and efficient pathways to global and regional challenges.  

The first of these meetings will feature IIASA Director General Albert van Jaarsveld introducing IIASA and its new strategy – highlighting some of the institute’s most relevant successes in the last year and looking forward to future ambitions. 

The webinars aim to spark communication between presenters and participants and create a space for conversation. They will be interactive and engage participants from around the world, both within our National Member Organization countries and beyond.
