Upcoming transition in IPO Leadership – International Open Call for the position of Executive Director

After 3 years with the Earth System Governance Project, Gustav Thungren will step down as Managing Director of the International Project Office as of 31 July 2022.

Over the last years, Gustav has overseen the creation of numerous Taskforces and Working Groups, organized both virtual and onsite annual conferences and workshops, supported the Scientific Steering Committee in its strategic work, promoted the Science and Implementation Plan of the Project, and helped to establish the International Project Office at Utrecht University.

It has been a pleasure and an honor to have been involved with the Earth System Governance Project from 2018 onwards, and to have contributed and furthered its development as an international network of people and institutions, as well as research excellence in the field of global sustainability science”, says Gustav Thungren.

The Earth System Governance Project expresses its gratitude to Gustav Thungren for his years of service for the Project. Gustav will take his extensive experience, knowledge and networks to move to his native Sweden, but will continue to work in the Managing Director role until the end of his tenure in July, and will remain a supporter of the Project afterward to ensure the Project’s future success.

The Earth System Governance Project is now announcing an international open call for the position of Executive Director, based at Utrecht University’s Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. Last day to apply for this unique full-time role is 30th April 2022.
