How does a respected Stockholm Resilience Center scientist make sense of our continued breaching of planetary boundaries?  More importantly does he have suggestions for ways we might operate within the planet’s safe operating spaces? With Planet Boundaries and the Oxfam Doughnut Economic model in mind, Per Olssen describes system entrepreneurs and the kind of agency needed to strengthen human-nature connectedness, navigate tipping points and scale positive impact innovation. He explores leadership for breaking down destructive systems, as well as for transitioning to life-oriented systems; in short, ways to reboot systems!

Professor Per Olsson leads the Stockholm Resilience Center research stream Resilience Science for Transformations. Find out more about him here.
