Marco Antonio Teixeira participated in the 3rd Seminar of the 4th Postdoc Academy for Transformational Leadership cohort. The Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University hosted the event from 11 to 13 October 2022.
The seminar introduced resilience thinking and the social-ecological system (SES) perspective, both of which are deeply rooted in complex systems theory. Key concepts were explained, and a specific focus was placed on the importance of addressing interactions between humans and nature and how fundamental changes in these relationships are required if we are to undertake the transformations necessary to achieve sustainable development.
The Postdoc Academy for Transformational Leadership is an initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and a joint project of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the four academic centres Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (IRI THESys), the Institute for Sustainable Development and Learning at Leuphana University of Lüneburg, the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT) in Rotterdam. It provides an intensive high-end training with four seminars in two years that broaden the research competencies of postdocs and promote their qualifications towards transdisciplinary leadership.
