Carl Folke speaks at WISE Dialogue

We are happy to introduce Carl Folke, one of our great speakers, to present at WISE Dialogue, March 22-23.

Carl Folke has been related to the Beijer Institute of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences since 1991, and the Director since 2007, the same year as Beijer Institute founded the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University.

In his talk at WISE Dialogue, he will talk about the new Anthropocene epoch – the age of humankind – and the challenges and opportunities it presents for human wellbeing, prosperity, and the future of civilization.

Can you give a word of encouragement to the new WISE PhD students and postdocs?
-You live in the most exciting times when there is systemic change and cultural evolution. You have the chance to make a real difference and help redirect societal development towards a sustainable future.
