As we emerge from 2022 — a year characterized by a polycrisis of intertwined environmental, security, and social emergencies — 2023 presents a new opportunity to build an upgraded economic system, one which puts our societies on a pathway towards wellbeing for all within planetary boundaries.
Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity, a new book published by the Club of Rome, offers an alternative to our current economic system which is failing people and planet. Using state-of-the-art computer modelling to explore policies likely to deliver the most good for the majority of people, the book sets out how extraordinary action across five essential areas (poverty, inequality, empowerment, energy, food) can deliver a bright future for all on a relatively stable planet.
This event brings together authors of the Earth for All Book and leading academics in Imperial College London and University College London to unpack the findings and discuss the implications for both public and business policy.
