Inspiring talk & discussion:
A life dedicated to the future – The futurist from Salzburg Robert Jungk  | Stefan Wally (Robert Jungk Library for Future Studies)

“Who was Robert Jungk and what relevant information does he have for us today? Throughout his time in modern history, Jungk has been called a forward thinker, and explorer of the future and a proponent of peace. He was a co-founder of the innovative and sometimes heavily criticized field of futurology and among the first proponents of what is now known as “Civil Society.” Jungk was also an integral part of the non-violent, ecologically conscious and anti-atomic movements which grew significantly in the 1970s. Were he still alive today, he would likely be a part of the worldwide protests against the massive excesses of the financial sector.
From 1971, Jungk established Salzburg, Austria as his permanent residence, where he died in July 1994. He and his wife Ruth, who passed away in March 1995, are buried in the Jewish cemetery of Salzburg with a memorial. Jungk was awarded the “Alternative Nobel Prize” in 1986, the second resident of Salzburg to receive this distinction after Leopold Kohr in 1983. The following information documents the life and work of Robert Jungk, as well as his publications and personal beliefs, all of which continue to be relevant today.”
