Abstract: 

Part 1 of this final report outlines current global environmental problems and serves as an introduction to the entire report. Part 2 gives the results of the Conference discussions. Chapter 1 summarizes the data and reference materials that were submitted to the Conference, and demonstrates how serious current environmental problems are by giving actual data on global warming, loss of biodiversity and others. Chapters 2 and 3 summarize the results of the discussions. Here the Conference proposes the concept of a "solar energy-based society" as a new societal vision (image) for the 21st century together with the measures to be implemented to achieve that vision. In light of heated discussions which took place at the Conference, the report presents the highest common factors that all members agreed with, including the concept of a "solar energy-based society."
