We present here contributions to an international congress of scientists and engineers "CHALLENGES - Science and Peace in a Rapidly Changing Environment", which was held in Berlin at the end of 1991.

The congress took place at a time when the enthusiasm about the change in Eastern Europe already had given way to anxiety about the enormous task of rebuilding whole political, economic and security structures. On a global scale even bigger chalenges are apparent. Humankind has entered a phase in which global developments are in conflict with basic requirements for human survival. The remaining stocks of weapons for mass destruction, the overuse of common resources, population growth, and a heavily unbalanced world economy endanger the survival of many people or even humankind in general. The arms race, hunger, poverty and environmental destruction are reasons for growing conflicts and wars throughout the world.
