The working group “Sustainability Assessment for the Social Dimension” will be chaired by Dr Peter Saling, Director Sustainability Methods at BASF and Prof. Pretzsch, Professor for Tropical Forestry at TU Dresden. The working group “Sustainability Assessment for Natural Resources” will be chaired by Prof. Jochen Schanze, Chair for Environmental Development and Risk Management at TU Dresden and Prof. Dominik Möst, Chair of Business Management, especially Energy Economics at TU Dresden.
The PRISMA Symposium follows the 4th PRISMA general assembly which as well takes place at UNU-FLORES this year.
The PRISMA Centre for Sustainability Assessment and Policy is a platform founded in 2016. Based on the vision that sustainability is measured and evaluated in a wide variety of disciplines, PRISMA develops innovative assessment approaches for the consideration of issues of economically successful and ecologically and socially acceptable long-term development taking into account spatial and temporal conditions. Prof. Edeltraud Guenther, who is also a founding member, represents UNU-FLORES as a member of the PRISMA Board.
