Global Governance and Planetary BoundariesWednesday 9th of May 2012, 15.30-17.00, lecture hall D8, Stockholm University
Exploring the new challenges for global environmental governance. UF Stockholm, with support from Folke Bernadotte Academy invites you to a seminar on this highly current topic, with guest speakers Victor Galaz, research theme leader at the Stockholm Resilience Centre on topics related to governance, complexity and planetary boundaries, and Sarah Cornell, coordinator of the planetary boundaries research initiative at the Stockholm Resilience Center. Sandwiches and coffee will be served from 15.00.
The notion of ‘Planetary Boundaries’ (Rockström et al., 2009 in Nature) is rapidly diffusing into a range of policy arenas, ranging from the UN High-Level Panel on Global Sustainability, to meetings between scientists and Tibetan religious leaders including the Dalai Lama. But does the notion of ‘Planetary Boundaries’ have any new implications for global environmental governance (GEG) at all? What are some possible major implications for GEG, which are the most controversial, and how do “planetary boundary” scientists try to tackle these?
Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org before 12.00 Tuesday 8th of May.
This seminar will be held in english. Welcome!
