Workshop on Quantitative Human Ecology

Date: 
Monday, 25 July, 2022 to Friday, 29 July, 2022

Scientists in disciplines ranging from economics to climatology will gather to foster a science-based consensus on challenges that are central to sustainability, such as rising inequality, demographic crises, migrations, biodiversity loss, and the impacts of climate change.

Two activities are targeted at the general public:

On 25 July, immediately following the workshop's opening ceremony, a special colloquium will be held under the auspices of the IYBSSD. Titled "Quantitative Human Ecology: Untangling the Determinants of Sustainability". The event will be livestreamed on ICTP's YouTube channel starting at 10:30.

On 27 July, physicists Guido Sanguinetti of SISSA and Elisa Omodei of Central European University will be the protagonists of a public event about how Big Data is impacting our lives and how it could be used to achieve the UN sustainable development goals. The event will start with a brief introduction by Alessandro Vespignani of Northeastern University. The event (in Italian) takes place at Trieste's Sartorio Museum starting at 20:30 and is open to all.
