For the third time, the OeAW is inviting representatives of a partner academy – this time the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) – to a multidisciplinary exchange on global challenges. Due to the pandemic, this year's “Joint Academy Day” will take place as a webinar and is explicitly aimed at the public.

Between 3:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (CET) on March 18, those interested are invited to get to know Canadian and Austrian perspectives on topics such as “Arctic and Alpine Environmental Change”, “Multicultural Citizenship” and “Healthy Societies”. Three further panels are dedicated to the special responsibility of academies in the 21st century, interdisciplinary cooperation on global problems, and the COVID-19 crisis.
