Planetary Boundaries: 2022 update with Professor Will Steffen

Please join us on Wednesday April 5 at 7 PM to honour the Australian climate scholar and ecologist Will Steffen who died January 29, 2023. Although better known in Australia, that hotbed of climate deniers, where he along with Tim Flannery and others were dismissed as climate commissioners by the Abbott government, his work was wide-ranging and global.

His legacy includes the concept of the Anthropocene and his work with Johan Rockström at the Stockholm Research Centre, led to the debate on planetary boundaries as “safe operating spaces” for humanity.

On Wednesday evening we present one of Steffen’s last videos in which he updates those original nine boundaries. His research gives us cause for thought as we in Aotearoa struggle to reduce emissions in agriculture, transport and energy and are faced with the massive rebuild and relocation of communities.

Please bring your ideas and your energy for a discussion following the webinar on the implications and the implementation of Steffen’s research.
