Semester Question: How do we humans impact the planet?

The age of humans, or the Anthropocene, is confronting us with very serious questions about our own future. On 14 June 2021, Achim Steiner, Administrator of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), discussed with environmental economist Alexandra Brausmann, meteorologist Andreas Stohl – both from University of Vienna – as well as by Katharina Rogenhofer, federal spokeswoman for the popular climate petition and University of Vienna alumna, about how to unlock the transformations that we need to strengthen both our social and planetary systems so that people and the planet prosper together.

Martin Kotynek, chief editor of the daily newspaper "Der Standard" moderated the event, which was accompanied by a live-ticker.
