Rockström's work on bridging sustainability science and policy has been instrumental for the progress of both organisations. He now looks forward to dedicating all his time to the further development of Stockholm Resilience Centre.
"Since its launch in 2007, the centre has established itself as an international focal point for research on global sustainability. The quality of our research will open up tremendous opportunities for finding better ways to govern social-ecological systems", says Johan Rockström.
He also looks forward to further improving the ties between the centre and SEI.
"SEI plays a leading role in global sustainable development. I look forward to further strengthening cooperation between SEI and the centre through my role as Executive Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre", says Rockström.
