For the first time in the history of humankind the human-induced socio-ecological crises are approaching or crossing planetary boundaries, threatening the very possibilities of survival on Earth. Only rapid and profound changes can steer us to a pathway towards planetary health. In order to make these transitions as safe and as just as possible, certain values and basic principles need to be considered and evidence-based decisions must be made. Thus, to achieve sustainable solutions for planetary health, a plurality of perspectives is required. This is what the “Environmental Engagements: talks”-series hosted by the Environmental Research Network aims at: Giving a platform to researchers from diverse backgrounds conducting cutting-edge environmental research at the University of Vienna, who are ready to engage with a broad audience beyond disciplinary boundaries through highly timely and solution-focused exchanges. Join the conversation!
