A series of public discussions organised by the Environmental Sciences Research Network of the University of Vienna in cooperation with the Natural History Museum Vienna

It is the responsibility of scientists to make research findings available to the public to provide a basis for new policies and a responsible approach to our environment. The ESRN and its members aim at responding to this need by organising regular public discussions. Our objective is to address environmental challenges that are highly relevant to society, to analyse them from different perspectives and to present state-of-the-art scientific findings for political and social action.


This series of public discussions is held in German unless indicated differently.
