The second symposium took place in London in 2009.
Stockholm Resilience Centre is co-organising the symposium together with the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm Environment Institute, Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics and Potsdam Institute of Climate Impact Research.
The golden triangle of progress
Previous societal transformations, such as the German Gründerzeit between 1850 and 1914, provide important lessons. Successful transition processes have been tied to what Schellnhuber calls the golden triangle of progress: (i) Identification of novel economic fields, (ii) development of outstanding scientific-technical capacities and (iii) powerful investment dynamics.
- The Nobel Laureates Symposium in Stockholm will bring together eminent intellectuals, decision-makers and investors to debate the twenty-first century version of this triangle - laying the foundation to tackle the intertwined socio-environmental challenges of today, Schellnhuber says.
