Lisen Schultz

Lisen Schultz is a sustainability scientist, cellist, author of the book “Kursen” (The Course), and director of education at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm university. In 2018, she launched the first ever executive programme in resilience thinking for CEOs and chair persons of influential companies, which has now engaged more than 60 business leaders in understanding and acting on the latest climate science. She believes the key to the future lies in collaboration – between science, art, business, policy and civil society.

Throughout her career, she has focused on understanding and addressing humanity’s biggest challenge: to meet everyone’s needs within the capacity of the planet, in a rapidly changing world. Because people need life on Earth, and not the other way around.
