Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Karl-Henrik Robert's work was prepared when Karl-Henrik Robert was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
In launching the Natural Step, former cancer researcher and clinician Karl-Henrik Robert has facilitated the outgrowth of a unifying framework for social and ecological sustainability, and built a global institutional platform that brings together disparate strands of environmentalism (scientific, social, economic, etc.) to assist institutions, from companies to governments, to create and implement concrete sustainability strategies. Karl-Henrik has successfully nurtured a global environmental movement. It engages a coalition of universities, companies, industrial groups, municipalities and larger government entities to pioneer new ways in which humans can systematically develop into a world that is socially and ecologically sustainable.
