We explore how people and nature can live and develop on a planet under pressure.

Founded in 2007, the centre is a collaboration between Stockholm University and the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy Sciences.

Today, we bring people together from around the world to research, study and collaborate, with a vision of thriving and resilient biosphere that enables well-being for all.

Our science addresses the sustainability challenges facing humanity, such as climate change and biodiversity loss. Our research ranges from local food systems to global financial markets.

We train the next generation of sustainability researchers and leaders, and co-create knowledge with communities, artists, organisations, corporations and governments.

Knowing that people and nature are deeply intertwined, we recognise the importance for humanity to reconnect to the biosphere to thrive within planetary boundaries.
