The Royal Colloquium 2013

POP leader Wolfgang Lutz was invited as speaker by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden



Under the theme A Changing World: Redrawing the Map, the 11th Royal Colloquium follows the tradition from earlier colloquia, which have in different ways dealt with the interaction between man and nature with special focus on agriculture, climate, energy, water, food security and the urban world.

With a focus on climate, human migration, food security, this Colloquium will concentrate specifically on the interface between science and politics, between hard science and social science perspectives, and how to make things happen; decision making and trust in people, laws and institutions.

His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden has initiated this series of Royal Colloquia at which a small group of experts from a broad range of fields meet to discuss and reflect on issues of major global importance. On 23 May Wolfgang Lutz will speak about "Human Capital for Global Sustainable Development" during Session IV Protecting the Future – Threats and possibilities.

Since 1992, His Majesty has initiated and chaired a total of ten Colloquia, most of which have been documented in the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences’ environmental journal Ambio.  In addition, results have been summarized in short “declarations”.
