Symposium on Global Sustainability

 

A mathematical representation of the major dynamics of the World, inspired by the “Limits to Growth” model, has been under construction. The mathematical model includes an ecosystem, human population, industry, energy generation, macro-economy, and rudiments of a legal system with private property, taxation, and regulation. The project was initiated at the US EPA in 2005, from 2010 to 2015 it proceeded under the joint supervision of Dr. Urmila Diwekar from the Vishwamitra Research Institute in Chicago, Illinois, USA and Professor Heriberto Cabezas from the Center for Process Systems Engineering and Sustainability (CPSES) at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University (PPCU). The project is now housed at the CPSES at PPCU. The CPSES Workgroup of PPCU has wide expertise across several disciplines including engineering, economics, ecology, and social science. The work will potentially have wide-ranging implications for decisions involving policy and technology. Hence, it is important to initiate a public dialog early in the process. To this purpose, the Symposium has the following goals: provide a detailed briefing to the Holy See on the efforts of the Workgroup, conduct a public discussion of the proposed effort, initiate the public dialog which should eventually lead to a level of consensus.
