Emily Boyd - new Editor-in-Chief of Global Sustainability

Emily Boyd
LUCSUS Director Emily Boyd.

LUCSUS Director professor Emily Boyd, has recently been appointed Editor-In-Chief for the journal Global Sustainability. Emily Boyd took over the editorship from the previous Editor-in -Chief, professor Johan Rockström.

As the new editor-in-chief, Emily Boyd would like to see a new dynamic phase in Global Sustainability.

She thinks that Global Sustainability has the potential to be at the forefront of global debates with relevant and timely science so as to contribute to pushing the boundaries of knowledge. 

-    In the wake of Covid-19 and over the next year my plan for Global Sustainability is to sharpen its focus, consolidate and re-energize. This will take place by building on existing efforts and generating new inspiration, engagement, and timely working. Probably the biggest challenge we face as a global community is how to maintain visibility and relevance in a rapidly changing landscape of publishing and funding.
