How do we communicate to leaders both the threats beyond ecological thresholds and the short-term solutions for realistic integration into working agendas? This 2011 Falling Walls lecture video highlights the work of Alejandro Litovsky, an expert on collaborative governance and sustainability innovation and founder of the Earth Security Initiative - a think tank that combines the knowledge and resources from business, environmental science, investment, and politics in order to increase opportunities for cross-sector coordination to address the challenges of ecological limits. His work seeks to establish a security value for resources and ecosystems, which can be translated into action through cross - sector partnerships. To illustrate the need for greater coordination across disciplines, Litovsky blends atmospheric physics with risk analysis and draws on live music performance, while exploring unions between society, science, politics, investment, and business in the context of the planet's ecological crisis. Musical accompaniment by Anders Scherp.
