Club of Rome members are worried about trade-offs in the 17 UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. On the other hand, they are enthusiastic about the Pope Francis’ Laudato Si encyclical. Their conclusion is that we need to develop a new Enlightenment that can profoundly transform the philosophical basis of society, to shift humanity away from a utilitarian and anthropocentric perspective to a spiritual and ecocentric view.
Members are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity: from the German renewable energy revolution to the progressive Chinese 15th Five Year Plan, from concepts like the Blue- to Circular- and Caring-Economies, and many more success stories around the world.
This projects brings together a wide-range of Club of Rome thinking to show what can be done to develop a more sustainable world.
