The Honorary Member of the Club of Rome Mircea Maliţa passed away on Monday 21 May.
He was a devoted path opener for the young generations, a brilliant visionary and an accomplished diplomat.
For me, personally, he is immortal. He is my Master and, above all, a true friend of an impeccable morality.

Our current economic systems have become addicted to “growth at all costs”, as measured by Gross Domestic Product (GDP). They assume that GDP growth is synonymous with increasing wellbeing and prosperity. However this approach has led to growing inequality, an escalating climate crisis, and the depletion of natural and social capital. We are no longer generating genuine progress. Our approach to economics and development needs fundamental transformation.
A number of Club of Rome members participate in the new Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WE-All) to help facilitate that transformation.
