Planet under Pressure 2012 in London
From March 26-29, Mattias Klum Tierra Grande will participate in Planet Under Pressure 2012, a major international conference focusing on solutions to the global sustainability challenge. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive update of the pressure planet Earth is now under, discuss solutions at all scales to move societies on to a sustainable pathway, and provide scientific leadership towards the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development – Rio+20.
Mattias Klum Tierra Grande and Stockholm Resilience Centre will have an exhibit in the data visualization mezzanine to promote the widely anticipated book, The Human Quest: Prospering Within Planetary Boundaries, written by Mattias Klum and Johan Rockström, with Foreword by President Bill Clinton. Stockholm Resilience Center will also have a stand throughout the conference, and the book will be officially launched at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in June.
