Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Breaking Boundaries follows the scientific journey of world-renowned scientist Professor Johan Rockström.
Johan tells the story of the most important scientific discovery of our time - that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept Earth stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilisation.
The feature length documentary offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.
A ten minute cut was played to forty world leaders as part of a virtual climate change summit hosted by Joe Biden on Earth Day April 22nd 2021.
Johan is the founder of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and Professor in Earth System Science at the University of Potsdam and Chief Scientific Advisor for Conservation International.

A metaphorical brain which envelops the Earth depicting a series of pathways of thoughts and ideas. These sparks of insight eventually interconnect to make one large homogeneous network. Johan's planetary boundaries concept was realised using CG crowd simulations to show how humanity is marching onwards towards Earth's limitations.
