Club of Rome has issued another global report looking at the world in 2052. Not surprisingly, it is not a pretty picture.
Dwindling global resources, continued population growth and a firm rooting in an outdated belief system of growth and market capitalism will bring the planet to the brink of collapse. Climate crisis will accelerate and possibly even reach a point of no return in the second half of the century, unless we act soon.
But there is also hope that we can transition to a sustainable, equitable and happier world. They outline six essential goals to make such a shift. None of these seem easy to achieve or reflected in societies today. It will be a huge learning process for mankind, but maybe it is a defining moment for us as a species. And it requires fast action. "Business as usual" is not an option if we want to ensure that our grand children can live on a worthwhile planet.
Let's make this a driving motivation in all our actions - the time is now!
