Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity details the results of a 2-year initiative to explore the systems-changes needed to achieve wellbeing for all on a finite planet. The project is formed of teams of scientists working on systems dynamic computer models, a group of economic thinkers, and communicators and advocates promoting Earth4All’s vision.
The analysis explores two scenarios to 2100. The Too Little Too Late scenario is where we continue as now and results in increasing inequality and social tensions. In the second – climate change is stabilised, extreme poverty ends a generation earlier, social tension falls and wellbeing rises. This Giant Leap is achieved by adopting five extraordinary turnarounds to end poverty, address inequality, empower women, and transform our food and energy systems.
The Transformational Economics Commission, led by The Club of Rome, brings together economic thought leaders from across the globe, to discuss new economic paradigms, act as a sounding board between the modelling work, economists and other stakeholders and provide decision makers with insights and policy tools on how to transform our economic systems towards ones that prioritise wellbeing. The commissioners have produced a number of deep-dive papers that delve further into the issues and solutions needed to provide an equitable future for all on a finite planet.
Transformative shifts for wellbeing economics
The Club of Rome is committed to advancing a wellbeing economy by investigating transformative system shifts. As a strong proponent in the discourse surrounding wellbeing economics, the organisation actively engages in various initiatives, such as being an organising partner for the Beyond Growth Conference 2023 at the European Parliament. The Club of Rome contributes to discussions on developing new indicators to measure progress and explore alternative options to GDP as the prime indicator of progress. By fostering partnerships with organisations worldwide, The Club of Rome conducts research, develops strategic approaches, publishes articles and policy papers, hosts workshops and events and proposes policy solutions within the field of wellbeing economics.
