Club of Rome
The Club of Rome was founded in April 1968 by Dr. Aurelio Peccei. Aurelio invited a group of thirty individuals from ten countries-scientists, educators, economists, humanists, industrialists, and national and international civil servants-gathered in the Accademia dei Lincei in Rome. Aurelio was an Italian industrial manager, economist, and man of vision, to discuss a subject of staggering scope-the present and future predicament of man. Out of this meeting grew The Club of Rome.
Hasan Özbekhan was one of the first Executive Directors of the Club and he led the drafting of the first report of the Club, known as The Predicament of Mankind: A Quest for Structured Responses to Growing World-Wide Complexities and Uncertainties.
