Climate crisis, health care crisis, inequality. If Alfred Nobel were alive today, he would certainly be engaged in helping to find solutions to these global problems. Today’s challenges for future generations are very large. They are listed in the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and include abolishing extreme poverty, reducing inequality, improving health, promoting peace and justice and solving the climate crisis. How can science contribute, and what can each individual do? Stefan Swartling Peterson has worked as chief of the health section at UNICEF and is now professor of global transformations for health at Karolinska Institutet.

Listen as he is interviewed live on Karolinska Institutet’s podcast Medicinvetarna about how all of us can make a difference and turn things around together. The conversation (in Swedish) will be moderated by Cecilia Odlind, editorial director of Medicinsk Vetenskap (Medical Science) magazine and host of KI’s popular science podcast Medicinvetarna, and by Andreas Andersson, host of Medicinvetarna. Organised in collaboration between Karolinska Institutet and Nobel Calling.
