Performance Lecture by Johan Rockström: About our time on earth

What will the planet of our children and grandchildren look like? What can we do today to avoid the worst disasters? And is there a light in the tunnel to a sustainable and attractive world? Meet Johan Rockström, professor of global environmental science, in a dramatized lecture on our future on earth. With the help of the actress Sanna Sundqvist from Dramaten, he tells about why the planet is in an acute emergency - and how we must immediately find a new direction so that global warming and the loss of biodiversity do not change the conditions for all life on earth. It will be dark, yet possibly a little hopeful. Johan Rockström has been named the most environmentally powerful person in Sweden twice, is a member of several scientific academies, has been head of the Stockholm Environment Institute and Stockholm Resilience Center and is now head of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. Rockström has written several books and been both summer and winter talker in P1. Performance Lectures, where knowledge is conveyed with the theater's tools, is a new way of exploring and communicating science with the help of the form of performing arts. The format is a recurring collaboration between Dramaten & and the Nobel Prize Museum. Previously, robot researcher Danica Kragić Jensfelt has given a Performance Lecture on robots, professor of theoretical physics, Ulf Danielsson, on the universe, psychology researcher Armita Golkar on fear, economics professor Micael Dahlen on happiness and philosophy professor Åsa Wikforss on truth. Due to the coronavirus pandemic the premiere on November 21 has unfortunately been postponed until further notice.
