Our planet faces enormous economic, social and environmental challenges, and despite important progress, there is growing awareness that the SDGs, the Paris Agreement and sustainable development cannot be achieved unless nations, leaders, businesses and people make radical changes. In other words, these targets can only be achieved through transformational change.
This change will have true impact on society, on the environment, on the economy – on our future.
This requires a systems-based approach, which is highly complex, as it requires large-scale and fundamental transformations on all levels of societal systems, institutions, technologies, policies, lifestyles and thinking.
