The Global Opportunity Report’s Advisory Board has been joined by another leading scholar on sustainability. Professor Frank Geels from Sustainable Consumption Institute at Manchester University has joined the board.
Frank Geels is chairman of the international Sustainability Transitions Research Network, and one of the world-leading scholars on socio-technical transitions. In January 2014 he was selected into Thomson Reuter´s prestigious “highly cited scholar” list.
Frank Geels’ work on Multilevel Perspective (MLP) has inspired the design of the Global Opportunity Report.
“Frank Geels’ work is instrumental for the design of the report and the analysis behind it. Naturally it is a great asset for the project to have him as an advisor on this,”
Morten Jastrup, Project Director of the Global Opportunity Network.
The Advisory Board is consulted on several issues but most importantly on the selection of opportunities for the report. These are inspired by eight international workshops – opportunity panels – and later tested in a global survey.
“The engagement activities with local stakeholders around the world is setting this apart from many other reports, and I am happy to contribute to this ambitious project,”
Frank Geels joins General Secretary of the Norwegian WWF, Nina Jensen; Professor Katherine Richardson and Managing Director of the Global Economic Symposium as well as the five members from DNV GL in the Advisory Board.
