Tipping Point (5/5): The great transition - Alternative paths for a better and climate just future
The Paris Agreement has set an ambitious goal to prevent global warming from spiraling out of control. But it has also set the stage for what will form the subject of numerous heated debates in the coming years: How do we tackle climate change? What is the framework that helps us decide which solution is viable? In this podcast series, we’ve looked at different strategies that have been proposed – some of which are speculative, risky, heavy with side-effects, others which look more attainable. In this last episode, we will zoom out and take a broader look at the transformation ahead. Climate change is a unique challenge. Each and every sector of the economy will have to change. Tackling the issue will require a fundamental shift in how we as humans interact with nature and our planet. Do we need a masterplan to get there? Maybe not. Because at this moment, many activists, scientists and entrepreneurs are already active, experimenting with models and ideas for a more sustainable and more equitable world. It’s a diverse set of approaches based on diverging cultural backgrounds that share acommon vision – to find ways for a livable and climate just future.
