For seven generations, our predecessors expanded the breadth and degree of human impact on the planet. Millions attained prosperity. But billions more await their turn.
If future growth is guided by the thinking and systems of the past, we will need resources equal
to two planet earths by 2035 to maintain our current lifestyles.
Our generation’s opportunity is to answer the call of our children, of our 6.7 billion neighbors,
and of the planet and its natural diversity. By transcending cynicism, short-term-opportunism,
and timid incrementalism.
To imagine and then build a world that is more sustainable, prosperous and healthy.
To strive for better, not just more.
We know the challenges. Solutions surround us. Now we must accelerate the change.
