Tipping Point – about human possibilities within the planetary boundaries


Sat Jun 04 2022 at 02:00 pm to 03:00 pm


Liljevalchs konsthall | Stockholm, ST

Welcome to the artwork and seminar series "Tipping Point - about human possibilities within the planetary boundaries". What can be done? What needs to be done? And what does art have to do with it?
The Global Challenges Foundation arranges this event together with Liljevalchs konsthall, the Institute of Future Studies and the research council Formas.
Tipping points do not only occur in undesirable contexts - such as when the forest has been devastated so that the soil has been eroded and new vegetation has been made impossible, or when the last individuals within a species have died and the species has thus disappeared forever. Tipping points also occur in desired contexts - such as when the price of wind power has decreased to the point that it is no longer worthwhile to build more coal-fired power plants, or when electric cars and vegetarian food compete with petrol and meat in significant markets. What are the positive tipping points, where are they, and how could we benefit from them? How do you get from a bad balance point to a good one? Investments and speculation are often herd movements, how far away is the global economic tipping point from a fossil to fossil-free energy bloodstream? What levers and thresholds are there to ensure that the world takes a path that means planetary boundaries are protected without social and political conflicts breaking out? And what demands are placed on people and politics to get on the right path?
