Professor Jørgen Randers has been busy weaving science and activism together over the last almost 50 years. 21th of May BI Norwegian Business School hold a seminar, BI's Green Economics Seminar and Festschrift, in the honour of Jørgen Randers for exploring and enduring that tension.
BI researcher Per Espen Stoknes was one of many presenters with the lecture "From Science to Activism - A “Happy Climate”?"
