Stockholm Whiteboard Seminars – excellent informal talks on resilience

The Stockholm Resilience Centre  has posted a series of simple and inspiring “back to basics” lectures about resiliency on its website.

From the creator of the project:

The idea is to get away from seminars loaded with lengthy and flashy PowerPoints and go back to basics. So, take the opportunity to get a short and close encounter with a top scientist in the field of sustainable development, who uses the whiteboard to explain an important concept or recent research insight just for you! 

The first video is from  Brian Walker, an Australian ecologist who delightfully explains what forest management, resilience theory and trauma surgery have in common.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The second is from Elinor Ostrom, a political scientist from Indiana University, who explains the concepts of commong pool resources and how to avoid the “tragedy of the commons”.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Thanks to the Resilience Science blog for the great tip!
