We present at September 20, 2023: Research and art for participatory paths to SDG future visions in the context of Earth4All and regional reference to Austria and Kenya.
In times of multiple crises, the transformation towards a sustainable future and well-being for all, as proposed in the Agenda 2030 with the SDGs, is at risk. The implementation of the SDGs and their targets depends on the ability to overcome the single focus on each goal, taking into account their entanglement, trade-offs and synergies. The Club of Rome’s latest initiative “Earth for All (E4A)” offers support through 5 turnarounds that go beyond the prevailing economic system: Reduction of Poverty and Inequalities, Empowerment of Women, Transformation of the Food and Energy Systems.
58th General Assembly of the UN
As part of the “Science Summit” on the occasion of the 58th General Assembly of the UN in New York, the Austrian Chapter is organising a three-hour session linking Earth4All and SDG research with a focus on Austria and Kenya. Therefore, we invite to several discussion rounds with diverse stakeholders, which are accompanied by scientific inputs, insights and cases of joint research and arts for SDG-future-visions in action.

To ensure broad participation and understanding of the interdependencies involved, the Club of Rome has initiated a special Earth4All / SDG modeling process in Austria and Kenya as pilot countries. The goal is to develop constructive future visions, goals, and indicators driven by stakeholders through participatory research approaches with scientific analyses and arts-based practices (participative modeling and indicator development). The overall research process aims to provide inclusive scientific ideas and options for political and societal actions towards sustainable development, bridging the gap between economic, ecological, and social interests.
This Session introduces the mentioned Club of Rome “Earth for All” initiatives and scientific approaches. Three impulse lectures followed by moderated discussion rounds with representatives of the governments and other stakeholders of both countries, who are invited to speak in the discussion rounds (panels).
