Current worldwide trends are not sustainable. The Club of Romes warnings published in the book Limits to Growth are still valid. Remedies that are acceptable for the great majority tend to make things worse. We seem to be in a philosophical crisis. Pope Francis says it clearly: our common home is in deadly danger. Analyzing the philosophical crisis, the book comes to the conclusion that the world may need a new enlightenment; one that is not based solely on doctrine, but instead addresses a balance between humans and nature, as well as a balance between markets and the state, and the short versus long term. To do this we need to leave behind working in silos in favor of a more systemic approach that will require us to rethink the organization of science and education. However, we have to act now; the world cannot wait until 7.6 billion people have struggled to reach a new enlightenment. This book is full of optimistic case studies and policy proposals that will lead us back to a trajectory of sustainability. But it is also necessary to address the taboo topic of population increase. Countries with a stable population fare immensely better than those with continued increase. Finally, we are presenting an optimistic book from the Club of Rome.

  1. En bok om hoppfull och nödvändig omställning
    Jan Öqvist, 6 mars 2018

    Denna bok är idag den bästa och mest konstruktiva genomgången av världsläget och vad som måste förändras för att vi, mänskligheten ska kunna leva i framtiden. Även om boken har sin utgångspunkt i det alarmerande globala tillståndet så stannar den inte där, utan visar på en mängd möjliga och nödvändiga förändringsprocesser som måste till.

The new book is essential reading for all of us. The book offers many positive, practical examples, success stories and opportunities. Many areas of action concern policies at EU level and are of direct relevance to the current policy debate, for example, a move towards a circular economy can help overcome mineral scarcity, significantly lower carbon emissions and increase the number of jobs or regenerative agriculture can stop soil erosion, enhance yields and build carbon in the soil. (Rod Janssen,, April, 2018)
