Alpbach-Laxenburg Gruppe

The Alpbach-Laxenburg Group strives to support global economic and social transformations towards sustainability by creating and communicating positive narratives for sustainable development and business opportunities, grounded in cutting edge international systems-science.

Alpbach-Laxenburg Group members include some of the best minds in the world today from academia, governments, business leaders and civil society; people who, independent of national and financial interests, are willing to place their collective knowledge, expertise, experience, and reputation at the service of the world community at this pivotal point in Earth’s development.

The group was jointly launched in August 2013, by the IIASA and the European Forum Alpbach as part of their ongoing strategic partnership. The basic goal underlying activities and deliberations of the group will be to support global transformations towards sustainability by creating and communicating positive narratives for sustainable development and business opportunities, grounded in cutting edge international system-science.

The transformation to sustainability covers much ground, including energy transitions, climate change, atmospheric pollution, world population, food and water, poverty and equity, social justice, world financial and monetary structures, and strategies around the future of the key geopolitical hotspots.
