The Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) is Europe’s largest, general science meeting biennially held in European cities. This year, ESOF will be hosted in Copenhagen from June 21-26, 2014. It is a platform for researchers from all sciences, business leaders, senior EU and government officials, and international scientific media, to discuss leading European science and to address current major global scientific challenges, including energy, climate, food and health. World Population Program Director Wolfgang Lutz will speak on Tuesday, June 24, from 13:30-14.45 in the session “Natural resource management and resilience: human behavior, decision making and adaptive capacity”.
During ESOF 2014 a satellite conference with the title European Student Parliaments (EUSP) will take place in Copenhagen. EUSP aims at strengthening the dialogue between students and scientists throughout Europe, and simulates parliaments where students aged 16 to 19 become acquainted with parliamentary decision-making processes as well as scientific research. Around 100 students will discuss the different subtopics on "The future of our city", of which 15 students will be in the committee "demography" and discuss the issue with Wolfgang Lutz. He will provide his expertise with regard to the questions raised in the subtopic "Demography in the city", such as differences in demographic developments in European cities, different perspectives within the research field demography, milestones for the future, etc. This side event will conclude with an expert hearing and a final debate.
