Cordially invite you to a luncheon event on The Human Quest.
Please join us for an invitation-only high-level discussion for leaders in business, policy, science and civil society to explore how to meet the challenges of navigating an increasingly more prosperous world, that is approaching 9 billion people, who all have the right to energy, food and fresh water, without jeopardizing the planetary foundations for economic and human development.
The Human Quest – Prosperity within Planetary Boundaries, by Professor Johan Rockström and photographer and National Geographic fellow Mattias Klum, provides powerful evidence that a new human paradigm for development is both necessary and possible. By combining amazing imagery with cutting edge science, they tell a human story and provide a new vision for challenges and solutions for our future.
