Lisen Schultz, a researcher and programme director of the centre’s new executive programme on resilience thinking will join the Stockholm Resilience Centre’s leadership team until the end of this year.
She will lead a redesign of the organisation in response to both external and internal changes, supporting the transition of the centre into its next phase of development. The work will coincide with the appointment of Line Gordon as the new director from 1 August 2018. Johan Rockström will step down and become joint director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
Schultz will work to ensure that the centre remains a creative organization where individuals and groups are motivated to contribute to its strategic direction.
Trust, inclusiveness and transparency will remain fundamental values of the organisation.
Our greatest assets are our collaborative culture and our excellent staff and students. We have been fortunate to attract and retain amazing talent to this organisation, and I am dedicated to developing structures and processes that make the most of everyone’s competences and passion, helping us stay at the front of sustainability science
Schultz was a PhD student with Carl Folke when the Stockhol Resilience Centre was launched, and she defended her thesis in 2009. Her scientific work has focused on the role of learning, participation and leadership in governance of complex social-ecological systems, based on empirical studies of biosphere reserves across the globe.
She also has extensive experience of designing and facilitating dialogues and collaborations between science, policy and practice. Most recently, she was the leader of the Biopshere Stewardship stream of the centre.
Managing director Olof Olsson, who has also been acting director of the Global Resilience Partnership, a position which will be filled by Deon Nel from 1 August 2018, will continue to be a part of the Stockholm Resilience Centreleadership.
Similarly, Henrik Österblom will continue in his capacity as deputy science director. Simultaneously, he will also lead the centre’s efforts to develop closer ties between science and keystone actors in the seafood business. Since 2016, he has led the work behind the Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS) initiative, a unique coalition that connects wild capture fisheries and aquaculture, science and business, and companies from Asia, Europe, and North America.
