Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to a joint Brown Bag Lecture of UNU-EHS and ZEF with <link>Paul Shrivastava</link>, Executive Director of <link>Future Earth</link>

on “Collaborative Future Earth Science for Sustainable Development under Climate Change

Date: Wednesday December 16, 12 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Venue: Zentrum für Entwicklungsforschung / Center for Development Research (ZEF),
Walter-Flex-Straße 3, 53113 Bonn (see <link 2316>map</link>). Ground floor, right conference room.


The session will be chaired by Prof. Jakob Rhyner, Vice Rector for United Nations University in Europe and the Director of the United Nations Institute for Environment and Human Security in Bonn (<link>UNU-EHS</link>).



We are living in the context of great social and ecological acceleration, pushing planetary boundaries, in an era some are calling "the Anthropocene". Human impacts on planetary systems are driving the change. Science in this era needs to deal with the challenges of climate change and sustainable development on a planetary scale. This talk introduces Future Earth to stakeholder-engaged transdisciplinary approaches to science, with a view to exploring collaborations with UNU institutions in a similar space. 


Paul Shrivastava was appointed Executive Director of Future Earth in February 2015, coming from Concordia University where he was David O’Brien Distinguished Professor of Sustainable Enterprise and the Director of the David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise. Shrivastava has more than three decades of experience in management education, entrepreneurship, and working as a consultant to major multi-national corporations. He has published 18 books and over 100 papers in academic and professional journals. Read more <link>here</link>.


Entrance to the lecture is free, no registration is required. You can take your lunch along!

We are looking forward to seeing you at ZEF on December 16!
