IPSP-ASAP Spain will be hosting an event in Barcelona on the 17th June 2019 hosted by UPF Planetary Wellbeing.
Planetary Wellbeing is a new project or rather a project of projects at Pompeu Fabra University to encourage researchers at UPF to focus on research that can improve the state of the planet and all those who live in it, and to facilitate collaboration between those already channeling their energy in this direction. It contains institutions inside UPF like IS Global (Institute for Global Health (https://www.isglobal.org/en ) and externally funded projects such as my own “Justice, Legitimacy and Global Institutions”.
The International Panel on Social Progress https://www.ipsp.org/ is a very large scale enterprise conceived (with the IPCC in mind) to gather information from hundreds of scientists on what is social progress, and what are the best ways to promote it and monitor it.
