Sandrine Dixson-Declève, co-president of The Club of Rome and co-author of Earth for All, will discuss why we need transformative change in a talk hosted by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL). 

This is a decisive decade for humanity. The next ten years must see the fastest economic transformation in history. Earth4All is an international initiative to accelerate the systems-change we need for an equitable future on a finite planet, building on the legacies of  The Limits to Growth  and the  Planetary Boundaries frameworks.  Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity,was published in September 2022 and presents the results of a remarkable two-year research collaboration.

During her talk Dixson-Declève will provide an overview of the findings from the book including: 

  • 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. 

The special CISL event is organized in collaboration with The Club of Rome, Cambridge Centre for Environment Energy and Natural Resource Governance, and Global Sustainability Institute.
