As a sequel to their 2012 book, “The Human Quest: Prospering Within Planetary Boundaries”, Centre Director Johan Rockström and National Geographic fotographer and senior fellow Mattias Klum have launched “Big World Small Planet: Abundance within Planetary Boundaries”.

The book, which was launched at the Swedish embassy in London in April 2015, describes a world full of possibilities even though “humanity has in just two generations overwhelmed Earth’s capacity to continue supporting our world in a stable way”.

“We have gone from being a small world on a big planet to a big world on a small planet. Now Earth is responding with environmental shocks to the global economy. This is a great turning point. Our home is changing, and our future depends on what we do next,” they write
