Biografi

Stephan Barthel is an associated researcher at Stockholm Resilience Centre and the director of the Urban Studio at the University of Gävle. This Urban Studio is a newly established research program on urban sustainability. It conducts research that supports urban development that is confined within the Earth’s carrying capacity, while maintaining focus on human well-being. The interdisciplinary research integrates 1) an urban social-ecological systems perspective that incorporates understanding about cross-scale resilience that include research on human behavior, human-nature interactions, ecosystem services and health, and with 2) a socio-technological systems perspective on sustainability transformations.
