Planetary Boundaries and Human Opportunities course

Today, the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) and Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) launched their MOOC (massive open online course) titled Planetary Boundaries and Human Opportunities. The MOOC will feature lectures from top sustainability scientists, including Johan Rockström, and will run from November 17, 2014 to January 18, 2015.

The course contains eight different modules, covering key sustainability science topics, such as: the Anthropocene, social-ecological systems thinking, planetary boundaries, and resilience thinking. The MOOC is also designed to be as interactive as possible through online forum discussions with other students and teaching assistants, and a chance to ask the top scientists questions through scheduled video “hangouts.”

Planetary Boundaries is the third course offered as part of SDSN’s online education initiative, SDSNedu, which launched in September 2014. All SDSNedu courses are free and open to the public. For more information about SDSN's educational initiatives, please write to us at
