National Engagement Strategy for Austria

Under the guidance of the Club of Rome – Austrian Chapter.

Earth4All goes to Austria

Since the publication of its first report, “The Limits to Growth,” the Club of Rome has stood for forward thinking and scientific renown. Building on this, the Earth4All Initiative – initiated by the Club of Rome – published a new report to the Club of Rome in September 2022, “Earth4All: A Survival Guide for Humanity.”

The report further develops the concepts of “The Limits to Growth” and discusses two different scenarios based on systemic and scientific principles:

  • Too Little too Late – business as usual, we continue as we have for the last 40 years.
  • We create a giant leap (“The Giant leap”) – a vision for a sustainable global society at the end of this century.

As the Austrian Chapter of the Club of Rome, we in Austria will be the first country worldwide to take up this vision and contribute to the discussion and implementation of these 5 turnarounds (see below) together with the 15 proposed measures on a national level.

First steps and activities for the implementation of these turnarounds and the corresponding measures in the sense of a “Wellbeing Economy” are planned in these 4 areas, which will also complement and enrich each other:

  • Citizen Engagement
  • Advocacy
  • Research
  • Public Outreach
 

Within this large framework, we would like to bring together a collective of organizations and individuals who will contribute their expertise in the respective areas and ensure the dissemination of the results.

The idea is to gather experiences that can then be implemented in other countries and regions. We want to inspire and empower people to take action with this positive vision.

You want to share this vision with your network? You would like to think about how a future vision for Austria and the world can be implemented and collaborate on a corresponding story for Austria? Then contact us!

We look forward to working with you. First steps have already been taken. For example, we are already planning 5 events starting in fall 2023, each with a public event including a workshop to concretize one of the turnarounds. 

Your project could also be a part of this. Get in touch with us!

The five extraordinary turnarounds to achieve the Giant Leap scenario

Earth4All has identified five extraordinary turnarounds needed to create wellbeing for all on a (relatively) stable planet. 

 

  • Eliminate poverty (global perspective)
  • Reduce inequality (national perspective)
  • Empower women
  • Transform food systems
  • The energy turnaround

 

These five turnarounds hold the potential to bring about real systems change and can be achieved by implementing key policy goals. 

Five turnarounds to rethink economic growth as a measure of progress and set our societies on a safe pathway to wellbeing for all. 

The story of Earth4All

Earth4All is an international initiative to accelerate the systems-change we need for an equitable future on a finite planet.  

Our analysis combines the best available science with new economic thinking. 

We found that the next ten years must see the fastest economic transformation in history if we want to steer humanity away from social and ecological catastrophe. 

It is time to upgrade our economic system.
