In 2015, I was invited by Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-Chair of the Club of Rome, to join ‘Come On!’. This project brings together a wide-range of Club of Rome thinking to show what can be done to develop a more sustainable world. Ernst knew about my various studies and my efforts to interlink technology, politics, economics and sociology. I became an author for the international Club of Rome.
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. We are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity.
Our conclusion is that we need to develop a new Enlightenment that can profoundly transform the philosophical basis of society. I advocate a holistic thinking and address sprouting change in our society, driven by the complex interdependencies of technology, economics and politics.
This projects brings together a wide-range of Club of Rome thinking to show what can be done to develop a more sustainable world.
The official release is scheduled for the 50th anniversary of the Club of Rome.
