MAGIC coordinator Mario Giampietro gave a keynote in the Wicked Tensions of Transition session of the 2019 conference of the Canadian Society of Ecological Economics (CANSEE 2019), that took place on the CIGI Campus of the University of Waterloo (Ontario) from 22 to 25 May 2019. Together with speaker Katie Kish, and drawing on the results of MAGIC, he teased out the ‘wicked tensions’ that persist between the biophysical and social realities of sustainability on a finite planet. Mario's keynote presentation focused on the profound implications of complexity for scientific advise in regard to transitions toward a more sustainable society.
