The first-ever gathering of scientists and university professors from Italy and Serbia on the topic of sustainable development will be held on Monday, March 18, 2019, at the Belgrade University’s Rectorate.
The focus of the event is on the initiatives of the Club of Rome, an association of scientists, economists, entrepreneurs, heads of state and activists, founded in 1968 by Aurelio Peccei. Inequality, climate change, energy sources, protection of peace and globalization have been the central initiatives of the Club of Rome since its inception. The Club consists of 35 national associations, including the Serbian one which joined in 2015, and participates in solving the issues of sustainable and inclusive development.
The event is organized in cooperation with the attaché for science at the Italian Embassy in Belgrade, the Club of Rome in Serbia and the University of Belgrade.
The Club of Rome in Serbia has organized eight lectures so far – on radioactive waste in Serbia, migration as a security challenge for Southeast Europe, fundamental ideas for a new paradigm in the economy, food and agricultural resources in the 21st century, the economy and policies for the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals, the destiny of a foreigner in the European migrant crisis, the astronomical causes of climate change on the Earth, and the mystery of money.
In addition, the Serbian subsidiary published two papers so far – “Radioactive Waste in Serbia: How and Where to Dispose of it?” written by I. Plečaš, S. Pavlović, M. Rajčević and N. Neskovic, and “Exit from Transitionism: “What has Serbia learned from past failures and recommendations for the future”, authored by D. Djuričin.
