Shifting from The Limits to Growth to Global Equity for a Healthy Planet: How do we ensure transformational governance?
4-5 December 2022
Hybrid- University for Peace and Online
Ciudad Colón, San José Province, Costa Rica
2022 marks the 50th Anniversary of The Limits to Growth, the most important and influential publication to The Club of Rome to date. The report was able to foster an understanding of the varied but interdependent components — economic, political, natural, and social — that make up the global system in which we all live; to bring that new understanding to the attention of policymakers and the public worldwide; and promote new policy initiatives and action.
Fifty years later, there is no doubt that humanity is overshooting the carrying capacity of the planet while not distributing the fruits of economic activity in a fair and just way.
It is clear that governance of the commons – our shared planet, is the key to a sustainable future. And this will be the focus of our Annual Conference, to be held in hybrid format – both online and in-person in Costa Rica.
In line with the objectives of the UGIH, this high-level session will lead discussions on how moonshot mindset and systems thinking can serve an expanded climate and sustainability innovation space.
