Centre launches new podcast series
Get close, up and personal with sustainability researchers reflecting on their work, careers and relation to music
Can music influence sustainability science? If you ask researchers at the Stockholm Resilience Centre it certainly can. Several of them have a close and passionate relationship to music. Indeed, there have been papers based on lyrics from artists such as PJ Harvey and Genesis.
In a new podcast series produced by the centre, researchers reflect on their reasons for working with sustainability science, their visions on the future and the role music plays in their lives. The series, named “Biophilia”, drawing inspiration from its definition (“the love of nature and all living things”) and the artist Björk’s album, blends sustainability science talk with a selection of the researchers’ five favourite songs.
In this first episode, science director Henrik Österblom shares his thoughts on his rise from a young marine biologist and hot dog salesperson (!) to the driving force behind Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship, an initiative to gather the world’s largest seafood companies and increase their efforts to strengthen sustainable practices. In addition to this, he has a profound interest in music which often inspires him in his work.
Henrik Österblom is interview by Owen Gaffney, head of international media at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
In the interview, Österblom refers to the following articles:
