We are developing a knowledge platform to support these international research collaborations. The Planetary Boundaries research initiative is hosted at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
It is a joint activity with the Australian National University and the University of Copenhagen.
Our goal is to advance scientific understanding about planetary boundaries and their implications for global sustainability.
This requires transdisciplinary research. It draws on diverse theoretical framings including Earth systems analysis, resilience research, governance and policy studies, ecological economics, and environmental history. The research activities also contribute to debates on global scientific responsibility and sustainability.
