Creating new dialogues
In 2013, The Human Quest Initiative contributed to collaborations between science, arts, business and policy to promote a new perspective on leadership both in Sweden and globally.
The one-year initiative built on the insights from the book The Human Quest, written by Johan Rockström and Mattias Klum.
The project aimed to experiment with joint insights from science, business and arts in order to promote an inspiring societal dialogue about the possibilities and the desired effects with the great transition towards global sustainability.
Convinced that it is both desirable and possible to combine human prosperity within the boundaries of our planet as we know it, the initiative was focused on showing the opportunities and positive effects with a sustainable development. Consequently, the initiative promotes collaboration and suggests a new mindset for leadership in order to make this combination possible and the world sustainable.
The initiative was led by Stockholm Resilience Centre with support from Stockholm Environment Institute and Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics. The initiative is funded by the Swedish Postcode Lottery.
