Lecture with Dr. Jane Goodall and Prof. Rockström

 

Mattias had the privilege last week to share the stage with his friend amazing Dr. Jane Goodall in collaboration with another friend doing great things for planet and people, Professor Johan Rockström. All proceeds from their joint performance in Stockholm Sweden go to the Jane Goodall Institute Sweden.

Mattias and Johan's presentation was based on their new book Big World Small Planet. The book argues that the world needs a new positive narrative about the links between human development and the environment. This is a story of new opportunities for humanity to thrive on the planet by using ingenuity, core values, and humanism to become wise stewards of nature and the entire planet.
