Human activity is exceeding planetary boundaries, the very systems that make life on Earth possible. Food, water, and energy systems are threatened, as well as healthcare, education, and social services, and democracy, justice, and peace.
The recent Club of Rome’s report ‘Earth4All’ makes a strong and clear case: The necessary turnarounds for a sustainable and regenerative future are still possible, but require governance and governing structures based on trust that focus on societal wellbeing and equity as a basis for sustainability transformations.
Good governance occurs when representative stakeholders are engaged in an inclusive and participatory manner in decision-making processes that are devolved to the “lowest” appropriate level, where relevant expertise, experience, and stake are most present.
Our week-long 2023 conference series focuses on how our many different transformative change efforts can make a decided contribution to such inclusive and participatory governance – serving the diversity of sustainability goals we are seeking to realize for life on planet Earth.
