Planet Earth: A Scientific Journey

This symposium focused on a subject of crucial importance to all: the planet that we live on. Starting from its very beginnings, considering the origin of life and evolution in its various forms, we investigated physical earth, offering an assessment of the planet, its current inhabitants and the biodiversity that support these. We also considered what science might hold for the planet’s future, including examples of how science is already positioned to enhance and help sustain our world.

The symposium was co-organized with Chalmers University of Technology and The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and hosted by Stockholm University.

Time: May 9-10, 2019 Location: Aula Magna, Stockholm University, Sweden
