50 éve jelent meg „A növekedés határai” címmel a Római Klub azóta emblematikussá vált jelentése. A konferencia célja, hogy megragadva a legfontosabb tanulságokat az 1972-es óta kialakult tendenciákkal kapcsolatban, előre tekintsünk. Az előadások és a kapcsolódó beszélgetések angol nyelven zajlanak, tolmácsolás nélkül.
Jelenleg nincs olyan időpont, amire jelentkezni lehet.
A 72 Tanítvány Mozgalom és a Faludi Ferenc Jezsuita Akadémia közös konferenciáját 2022. szeptember 28-án, szerdán 14:00-17:30 között rendezzük meg, amelyet az alábbi linken élőben közvetítünk:
Beszélünk a rendszergondolkodás és a modellezés lehetőségeiről a valószínű és kívánatos jövőképek értelmezésében. Megvizsgáljuk az álló- és alkalmazkodóképességet (reziliencia), mint a jövőbeli változások megértésének és kezelésének eszközét.
A tanulságok alapján kitekintünk a gyakorlati, közeljövő béli cselekvés lehetőségeire.
Előadóink a Balaton Csoport tagjai.

02:00 PM Opening: Welcome from the host
A message from Dennis Meadows, leader of the MIT research group, co-author of “Limits to Growth”
02:10 PM Experiences in resilience building for social capital - Justine Braby
Justine Braby will bring examples of social projects and initiatives having increased resilience as one of the results. Even if "unintended", even if the main thrust of the project was something else.
02:45 PM A systems view on how resilience works - Anupam Saraph
Having listened to the concrete cases, stories, Anupam Saraph will be more analytical with showing the system behind resilience (or the lack of it). This should also offer a glimpse into the systems approach and modelling in general, even if only as a reminder, or flagging.
03:20 PM Break
03:40 PM Resilience-building through systemic nature-based solutions - László Pintér
Laszlo Pinter will indicate using selected examples how global natural capital has changed recently, how conditions and status can be judged. Then he will proceed to the question how (general) resilience can be promoted / built, purposefully, through systemic nature-based solutions.
04:15 PM Lessons from Limits to Growth – from sustainability to resilience? - Bert de Vries
In the light of what we heard about resilience, Bert de Vries will remind us about the messages of LtG and their fate, the valid lessons for the present, and the sustainability/stability/resilience connections. He will also discuss broadly “world futures”, and spend the larger part of the talk on this topic.
04:50 PM Concluding Q&A session
05:30 PM Conference ends
Justine is the Director of Progress Namibia, a company that leads work on supporting sustainable development in Africa through various services, including capacity building, mentorships, facilitation, communication and education, and development planning, implementation and evaluation. The company's work also encompasses action-research on new progress indicators that focus on human wellbeing, health and education, decent work and natural welfare, through a project called 'For Progress Namibia', on which she is a committee member. Justine is a member of the WE-Africa Action-Research Network (www.we-africa.org) and of the Wellbeing Africa Lab (made up of 28 participants across Africa) redefining what is meant by success in Africa. Justine and her colleagues have conducted bottom-up research by collecting narratives through depth dialogue processes on what progress and a successful society looks like.

László Pintér is a Senior Fellow with IISD and Professor and Acting Head of Department with the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy at the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary. Dr. Pintér has done extensive work on sustainable development goals and indicators, strategies, integrated assessment, sustainability reporting and synthetic global outlooks. Currently he also works, among others, on vulnerability and adaptation to high-end climate change through the EU-funded IMPRESSIONS project and on understanding the role and potential of nature based solutions in urban sustainability transformations through the NATURVATION project. He continues to work worldwide with governments, multilateral organizations, companies and communities that seek to translate sustainability from theory into practice.

Bert J.M. dr Vrie
Bert J.M. de Vries has a background in Theoretical Chemistry. He is co-founder and member of the Institute for Energy and Environment (IVEM) at the University of Groningen in The Netherlands, where he received his Ph.D. on sustainable resource use. Since 1990 he has been a senior scientist at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. Between 2003 and 2013 he has been Professor of Global Change and Energy at Utrecht University in The Netherlands.
He has contributed to and published extensively on resource and in particular energy analysis, modelling and policy; climate and global change modelling; and (complex) systems modelling for sustainable development. He has been actively involved in modelling and scenario construction for a.o. IPCC. He wrote the emblematic book “Sustainability Science” (Cambridge Univ. Press), the definitive, comprehensive yet accessible summary of the field. At present, his interest and research is on worldviews and ethics in relation to sustainability and the connection between sustainable development and the financial system.
