Johan Holmén

Post doc, department of Space, Earth and Environment.

Johan holds a PhD in Physical Resource Theory and conducts research on sustainability transformations. The research develops knowledge on how society’s complex sustainability challenges can be understood and addressed in transformative ways in practice, emphasizing methodological development for learning and systemic change based on backcasting. The research is inter- and transdisciplinary where knowledge is drawn from multiple fields, also in collaboration with societal actors.

Johan has a special interest in education for sustainable development and has been part of establishing Challenge Lab at Chalmers that in 2016 received the UNEP/EAUC GUPES Green Gown Award. Johan also participates in The Postdoc Academy for Transformational Leadership (2022-2024), which is an initiative of the Robert Bosch Foundation together with the Humboldt-Universätet zu Berlin, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions.
