The year 2022 signaled a milestone: 50 years had passed since the first publication of the Club of Rome’s “Limits to Growth”. CLI took action for the need to transform our societies, our economies, and our thinking to the degree needed for regenerating our planet with its Transformation Literacy Conference.
We need tools that are not only grounded in science and practice but also available to everyone: we all need to become masters in the language of transformation. What needs to happen together to enable this transformation? Six mutually supportive Transformation Enablers – each of them a necessary component to become a transformation literacy master – structure each conference, yet their mutually supportive character means that we need to combine them to be able to clearly see the path and the actions needed to lead us collectively toward a better world.
No single actor has all the solutions, but each actor may essentially contribute a parcel of knowledge, a puzzle piece that counts. Partnering and networks of multi-stakeholder collaboration between business, NGOs, government, the UN, and communities are essential to achieve the SDGs. The annual Transformation Literacy Conference is the place for them to meet, exchange, and start new collaborations.
