SCIENCES: sustainability challenges for the
third millennium


Science and technology are posing challenges that were unthinkable until a few years ago,
demanding a radical rethinking of the relationship between man and the natural and social
environment. It is therefore necessary to build a new “human ecology” which, by bringing
together scholars of different types of training and positions, guarantees the indispensable
cultural tools for the training of professionals who can take care, in a critical manner, of our
“common home”.
