Vision and mission
The Vision for the Stockholm Resilience Centre sets out the long-term direction of the activities of the Centre. It is accompanied by a Mission, which presents what we hope to accomplish and how.
The vision of the Stockholm Resilience Centre is a world where social-ecological systems are understood, governed and managed, to enhance human well-being and the capacity to deal with complexity and change, for the sustainable co-evolution of human civilizations with the biosphere.

The mission of Stockholm Resilience Centre is to advance research for governance and management of social-ecological systems to secure ecosystem services for human wellbeing and resilience for long-term sustainability. We apply and further develop the scientific advancements of this research within practice, policy, and in academic training.

What is resilience?
We look upon the world through a resilience lens which provides a new framework for analyzing social-ecological systems in a changing world.
