How can we create harmony between national prosperity and the survival of our planet? This is one of the crucial issues that humanity is facing.

With one eye on the present and another on the future, members, famous personalities and friends of the international Club of Rome assembled in Rome today to celebrate its 50th anniversary and discuss such critical issues.

The Club of Rome is a think tank of experts from science, economics, and politics focusing on the key issues humankind will face in the future. It became famous with the first report to the Club of Rome “Limits to Growth” and now, half a century later, a new analysis on the future of humankind came to similar results. We have to invest more in education, sustainable food production, reduce inequality through global tax systems and halve CO2 emissions every decade from 2020 on.
