I am pleased to share the successful conclusion of the first conference dedicated to global catastrophic risks for Spanish-speaking audiences. This pioneering event was a collaborative effort between the Human Rights Commission, the Faculty of Sciences of UNAM, Carreras con Impacto, and the Observatorio de Riesgos Catastroficos Globales. The objective of this conference was to open academic discussions on GCRs in the Spanish-speaking world, encourage UNAM students to focus their careers on these topics, and generate original content for Spanish-speaking audiences.
