The economic operating system keeps crashing. Its time to upgrade to a new one. Five decades ago, The Limits to Growth shocked the world by showing that population and industrial growth were pushing humanity towards a cliff. Today the world recognizes that we are now at the cliff edge: Earth has crossed multiple planetary boundaries while widespread inequality is causing deep instabilities in societies. There seems to be no way out. Earth For All is both an antidote to despair and a road map to a better future. Using powerful state-of-the-art computer modeling to explore policies likely to deliver the most good for the majority of people, a leading group of scientists and economists from around the world present five extraordinary turnarounds to achieve prosperity for all within planetary limits in a single generation. Coverage includes: Results of new global modeling that indicates falling well-being and rising social tensions heighten risk of regional societal collapses Two alternative scenarios Too-Little-Too-Late vs The Giant Leap and what they mean for our collective future Five system-shifting steps that can upend poverty and inequality, lift up marginalized people, and transform our food and energy systems by 2050 A clear pathway to reboot our global economic system so it works for all people and the planet. Written in an open, accessible, and inspirational style using clear language and high impact visuals, Earth For All is a profound vision for uncertain times and a map to a better future. This survival guide for humanity is required reading for everyone concerned about living well on a fragile planet. BOOK AWARDS FINALIST | 2022 Foreword INDIES - Ecology & Environment

It's time to shift from the age of endless growth to an age of thriving in balance. This thought-provoking analysis proposes five critical turn-arounds for getting us there each of them raising urgent issues for public discussion and action. Read on to explore possible futures for humanity and join the most vital debate of our times. Kate Raworth, author, Doughnut Economics This tremendous collaboration, documented in this breathtaking book, provides yet more evidence that so much good can come out of pooling our minds and skills, to build a world that works for all. Why not opt for one-planet prosperity, if the alternative is one-planet misery? Mathis Wackernagel, Ph.D., founder, Global Footprint Network, co-author, Ecological Footprint If we'd paid attention to The Limits to Growth in 1972, we wouldn't be in the fix we're in today; as the modeling in this book makes clear, what's left of this decade may be our last best hope to get it at least partly right. Bill McKibben, author, The End of Nature This latest, most urgent, and most carefully researched version of system science's scenarios for our human future is essential reading for collapse preventers everywhere. Whether its recommendations are taken up by policy makers everywhere and whether we humans are therefore able to avert worldwide ecological, economic, and social breakdown sometime during the remainder of the 21st century is up to all of us. Richard Heinberg, senior fellow, Post Carbon Institute, author, Power: Limits and Prospects for Human Survival An extraordinary book at an extraordinary time. For today and tomorrow's leaders, Earth for All is a must-read. This book offers a concrete, breakthrough vision on how to ensure well-being for all in any country on our finite planet. Together, we can build a world that is genuinely equitable by following the 5 Turnarounds a roadmap to accelerate the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals in the next decade. I hope it will inspire a new movement of minds and souls that are willing to save our precious humanity. Ban Ki-moon, 8th Secretary General of the United Nations, and Deputy Chair of The Elders Earth For All conclusively shows that humanity's future on a livable planet depends on drastically reducing socio-economic inequality and a more equitable distribution of wealth and power. Essential reading on our long journey toward an "Earth for All" society. Thomas Piketty, author, Capital in the Twenty-First Century and A Brief History of Equality This book arrives at a moment in time when humanity is facing its most consequential decade in human history. What we do now will determine whether we have a future to protect. In order to ensure our survival, we must understand the interconnected nature of the current convergence of crises we are dealing with. Earth for All illustrates this understanding and uses it to show us a path forward that will put the wellbeing of people and our planet first, instead of profit and growth. Kumi Naidoo, global ambassador, Africans Rising for Justice, Peace, and Dignity Too many cooks, they say, but in this case we are talking chefs. Indeed, the multiple authorship of Earth For All ensures both hugely satisfying food for thought and high-energy fuel for action. The two scenarios, "Too Little, Too Late" and "The Giant Leap," will help readers to confront the existential realities now facing us, while the proposed recipes for change will help guide the those of us who value the future and are ready to roll up our sleeves in pursuit of better futures for all. John Elkington, founder and chief pollinator, Volans, and author, Green Swans: The Coming Boom In Regenerative Capitalism Timely, brilliant book. Earth For All describes a concrete roadmap to transform our economies and defeat poverty whilst protecting planet Earth. An inspirational read for
