Galaz, V. et.al. Planetary boundaries – exploring the challenges for global environmental governance. Curr. Opin. Environ. Sustain (2012), doi: 10.1016/j.cosust.2012.01.006
Publication review A range of studies from Earth system scientists argue that human activities drive multiple, interacting effects that cascade through the Earth system. Recent contributions state and quantify nine, interacting 'planetary boundaries' with possible threshold effects. This article provides an overview of the global governance challenges that follow from this notion of multiple, interacting and possibly non-li...

Publication review While some of the future impacts of global environmental change such as some aspects of climate change can be projected and prepared for in advance, other effects are likely to surface as surprises - that is situations in which the behaviour in a system, or across systems, differs qualitatively from expectations. Here we analyse a set of institutional and political leadership challenges posed by 'cascadin...

Tipping Toward Sustainability: Emerging Pathways of Transformation. In AMBIO, Vol. 40, Issue 7. Doi: 10.1007/s13280-011-0186-9
Publication review This article explores the links between agency, institutions, and innovation in navigating shifts and large-scale transformations toward global sustainability. Our central question is whether social and technical innovations can reverse the trends that are challenging critical thresholds and creating tipping points in the earth system, and if not, what conditions are necessary to escape the current lock-...
