Why a Living Futures newsletter?

Information access is at all-time highs, but information inequality is putting democracies at risk. Disinformation threatens to block most people’s access to routine science-based understanding of reality, and that makes all of us less secure. 

Our industrial civilization is bursting through critical planetary boundaries, putting natural systems at risk, and undermining the viability of the very world we work every day to build. In 2021, the high-stakes projects of COVID recovery, climate resilience, and Nature-positive innovation, mean decisions of consequence will be made that will affect the livability of our societies for generations to come.

Living Futures will be a window onto the shifting sands, elusive ideas, and new tools we must all use to build a resilient future of inclusive prosperity.
