The report, ‘Economy and Finance for a Just Future on a Thriving Planet’ will be launched at this upcoming webinar/seminar. It 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 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 presentation of the report will be followed by conversations with several extinguished guests on science-policy interactions, systemic risks and the Stockholm+50 meeting. This event is also generously supported by the Anna-Greta and Holger Crafoord Foundation.

During the day there will be several moderated conversations. Associate professor and SFL Center Vice-Director Lin Lerpold will participate in one titled, “Financial flows and systemic risks: Climate, justice and investments”, together with Professor Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia University (joining via Zoom).
