She is a contributor to the World Economic Forum's Agenda and past member of the Global Future Council on Frontier Risk. She is a social scientist and expert on global risk and analyses how a range of actors (companies, policymakers, civil society, and local communities) make sense of ecological change and global risk, and how these actors transform and build resilience across scales given environmental pressures and social inequities. She has been the Professor-in-Residence at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development since 2012. Her research has been published in Nature, the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies, Ecology & Society, etc. Research aims to help organizations deal more effectively with sustainability challenges. Has led or is leading a number of large research grants related to sustainability and climate change, including philanthropic donations in support of science communication. She founded and is the Executive Director of the not-for-profit Arctic Basecamp which runs a flagship event in Davos alongside the Forum's Annual Meeting.
At Davos 2024, the not-for-profit initiative, Climate Basecamp, launched a new campaign called 'Performing Hope in the Face of the Climate and Nature Crisis'.
Climate change is impacting the planet, but it's hard to get many people to act. Here's how Climate Basecamp used ice cream to change how we talk about science.
The polar regions are warming faster than anywhere else and could trigger global climate tipping points, putting the Sustainable Development Goals at risk.
La tecnología del metaverso está permitiendo crear un entorno inmersivo para visualizar los riesgos globales interconectados de los rápidos cambios polares. Así es como funciona.
Here's how the metaverse is being used to educate people about the polar tipping points and to provide them with opportunities to take action.
The North and South Poles help regulate the world’s climate and weather. But the polar regions are in crisis, warming faster than the rest of the world.
How can we manage frontier risks more effectively? First we must tackle why decision makers often fail to prepare, then we can build resilient pathways.
L'année dernière, les températures dans le cercle Arctique ont atteint leurs niveaux les plus élevés jamais enregistrés.
Arctic old ice - the ice that stays throughout the summer - is shrinking rapidly. It plays a vital role in regulating the planet's climate, and its loss would be catastrophic. It's time t...
While the Arctic holds only 1% of the world’s ocean volume and occupies only 3% of the world’s ocean surface area, its impact on the global climate system is disproportionately large.
It's not just freezing temperatures across Europe that have scientists worried. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe - a worrying trend and a clear sign that now i...
Here are three key reasons why melting in Greenland poses significant global economic risks.
Financial performance isn’t the only barometer of global economic risk. Rapid changes in the Arctic are a warning sign that our social-ecological-economic system is out of whack.
We live in a connected world, and what happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic.
