Stockholm Resilience Centre

 

“In order to solve the great environmental problems of the world, we need to change course. Our hope is that the Stockholm Resilience Centre will contribute essential knowledge that is needed to steer development onto a sustainable path,”

Johan Rockström, Executive Director of Stockholm Resilience Centre.

 

“Our societies are an integrated part of the biosphere and dependent upon functioning ecosystems. That is why we need to manage ecosystems so that we can handle the future’s challenges and maintain our capacity to evolve in a positive way,”

Carl Folke, Science Director of Stockholm Resilience Centre
