Guidance Notes for Working Group 2

We have produced draft mind maps of key big science ideas to support the guidance notes. Each mind map addresses one big science idea taken from the research on Planetary Boundaries by Johan Rockström (Stockholm Resilience Centre).This is a work in progress, and we are trailing the mind maps and using the results to write guidance notes.
