This model represents new way of viewing the Sustainable Development Goals and how they are all linked to food. It calls for a shift away from the current sectorial approach where social, economic, and ecological development are seen as separate parts. Instead we must transition toward a logic where the economy serves society so that it evolves within the safe operating space of the planet.
Rethink Talks is Stockholm Resilience Centre's multimedia podcast series on resilience thinking and global change.
It spotlights conversations between experts on a range of topics that highlight how resilience thinking and biosphere stewardship adds value to current debates on for instance COVID-19.
Each episode is available as podcast and video.
