The Future We Want to Create
Our blue, fragile and beautiful planet has brought about an astonishing variety of creative forms of life, all interconnected in relationality and interdependent in emergence and development. It has also brought about the human species, one that loves and longs to be alive, yet is equipped with the capacity to destroy each other and seriously diminish the planetary life support system – the very basis from which this species developed.
In the future we begin to shape today, we commit to living in harmony with nature and each other.
Economies will be life-serving. People and governments will take care of the commons and safeguard life-support systems.
Through democratic governance, people will design future together, no matter which gender, culture, religion, region or status. They will do so with reverence towards the beauty, uncertainty and intelligence of life.
Production and consumption cycles will be socially embedded and regenerative. Economic activities will be anchored in purpose, craft meaningful partnerships, adapt to context and strengthen regional cycles of circularity.
Health systems will truly serve people. Wealth will be newly defined, distributed and access to basic needs ensured for all. Planetary boundaries will be respected.
Societies will be devoted to life-long learning, creative expression and peaceful existence. Life-enhancing technological and social innovations will be promoted. Societal progress metrics will track the vitality of societies and ecosystems.
Parameters for Future Economies
We bring together a broad network of egalitarian, intersectional, transdisciplinary, curious and feminist inspired minds to develop life-serving economic reference systems with parameters for our future economies. The transformation to the future we want to create is possible – if we identify transformative turnarounds, develop a new economic architecture built on life-serving principles and steward the change collectively.
