Mistra Geopolitics will participate in two seminars organised in collaboration with the Swedish foundation for strategic environmental research, Mistra and the Haga Initiative during the Swedish political week Almedalsveckan in Visby, Gotland.
Mistra Geopolitics Co-Director Henrik Carlsen will contribute with his expertise in two distinguished panel discussions. Both held on the 4th of July: Backlash on the climate issue – how can politics improve on foresight and Climate, security and resources – how do we handle several crises at the same time?
We now clearly see that geopolitical considerations and perspectives are intertwined with environmental and climate change. These developments challenge conventional thinking, and therefore science and policy – and business – need to work closer together to better navigate an uncertain future, said Henrik Carlsen.
