The Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) are offering a pioneering online 8-week course on Planetary Boundaries and Human Opportunities: The Quest for Safe and Just Development on a Resilient Planet. The course looks set to cover a broad range of the key emerging concepts in sustainability science, including the Anthropocene, planetary boundaries, the socio-ecological systems approach and resilience thinking – all in a user-friendly way that can fit around a busy schedule.
Lead by Johan Rockström and a ream of well-known contributors, including Sarah Cornell and Victor Galaz, this course offers a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the most up to date scientific research on anthropogenic global change and the adequacy of the current responses. Such knowledge is invaluable for those working to shape policy to better protect the Earth system.
The course starts the week commencing 17th November 2014. Have a look at the trailer for the course created by the Stockholm Institute to get a better idea of the content:
