This meeting will review global sustainability in the context of: climate change; supply of essential materials, food and energy; and new disease patterns. The challenges to global societies will be discussed and the potential of advances in biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, energy technology and materials science to ameliorate these problems will be considered, together with the intrinsic limits of wholly scientific solutions.
