Planetary boundaries: Challenges for science, civil society and politics


The planetary boundaries concept was formulated in 2009 by a research group led by J. Rockström and revised by W. Steffen et al. in 2015. The most important challenges for the further processing of the concept include the translation, operationalization, utilization, downscaling and application of the concept. This was the starting point of the project “Planetary Boundaries: Challenges for science, civil society and politics” that examined the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and risks of the concept. The aim was to analyze the concept’s requirements on politics, science, civil society and business and providing information for its political implementation.
