Economy and Finance for a Just Future on a Thriving Planet – Report launch

At this webinar/seminar a report will be launched which explores the role the financial sector and our globalized economies need to take, to build the resilience of both people and planet in the new Anthropocene context. The work presented builds on decades of work on systems thinking, ecological economics, resilience science, Earth system science, and insights from a vibrant field of sustainability sciences. The presentation of the report will be followed by conversations with several distinguished guests on science-policy interactions, systemic risks and the Stockholm+50 meeting.

The report has been commissioned by the Swedish Ministry of Environment as an independent input and contribution to Stockholm+50, and has been led by the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre, at Stockholm University. The report builds on the Nobel Prize Summit 2021, Our Planet, Our Future, an international scientific initiative on sustainable development hosted by the Nobel Foundation.

The report and a summary of the report will be found at financefuture.earth

This event is generously supported by the Anna-Greta and Holger Crafoord Foundation.
