To tackle the greatest challenges of our time, tremendous levels of investment will be needed to transform the unsustainable systems that our societies are built upon. Deep Transitions Futures is an interdisciplinary research project that brings together social scientists from the sustainability transitions field and a Global Investor Panel of both private and public investors, to develop a new type of investment that is fit for a world in transition: Transformative Investment.
In this process, we have co-created three future worlds for 2050 that address, in different ways, bringing the transformations needed to achieve environmental sustainability, social justice and ultimately a better future. Through our crowdsourcing initiative, we want to open the discussion on the desirability of these different futures from different perspectives, life experiences and places. We want to gather as many voices and perspectives as possible, to see beyond our frameworks and blind spots to make our work more relevant and attuned to the diversity of today’s world.
In this session, we will introduce the Deep Transitions Future projects and its Crowdsourcing initiative. You can learn more about the method we used to design these three words, and how the crowdsourcer works. Join us, let your voice be heard and help us make the transformation towards sustainability happen!
