Congratulations to my colleague, Johan Rockström, director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and SEI, who has been named Swedish Person of the Year by FOKUS magazine

for his engaging and exciting work for sustainable development.

The Stockholm Resilience Centre has a press release about the award in which Johan states:

I am immensely honored to receive this award, above all on behalf of my many colleagues whose work deserves this attention. Both SEI and Stockholm Resilience Centre conduct enormously important work to support sustainable development in both rich and poor countries. This also includes the importance of actively communicating their work to policymakers and society as a whole, Rockström says.
