The Club of Rome is an organisation of individuals who share a common concern for the future of humanity and strive to make a difference. The members are notable scientists, economists, businessmen, high-level civil servants, and former heads of state from around the world. Their efforts are supported by the Secretariat in Winterthur, Switzerland, the European Research Centre, registered in Constance, Germany, and National Associations in more than 30 countries.
The Club of Rome conducts research and hosts debates, conferences, lectures, high-level meetings, and events. The Club also publishes a limited number of peer-reviewed “Reports to the Club of Rome”, the most famous of which is “The Limits to Growth“.
The Club of Rome’s mission is to promote understanding of the global challenges facing humanity and to propose solutions through scientific analysis, communication, and advocacy. Recognising the interconnectedness of today’s global challenges, the Club of Rome’s distinct perspective is holistic, systemic, and long-term. As a full member of the Club of Rome, Dr. Petra Kuenkel, with her wide range of professional background, belongs to this global movement network.
