First published in September 2022, Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity is based on a two-year research collaborative project, bringing together leading scientists and modellers with economists from around the world. It presents five extraordinary turnarounds as the minimum actions we need to take now to achieve wellbeing for all on a relatively stable planet.
The book builds on the common mantra from social movements calling for “Systems Change Not Climate Change” and “People Not Profit”. It lays out what economic systems change really means for civilization and proposes five extraordinary turnarounds that provide a framework for a fair, just, and affordable economic transformation. Earth for All tackles the fierce debate between advocates for “green growth” and supporters of “degrowth” economies.
“Sandrine Dixson-Declève, author and co-president of The Club of Rome said, “Our economic and financial systems are broken, and we are reaching dangerous levels of inequality. Do we want to create the first trillionaire or do we want to create functional, fair democratic societies? Ultimately, Earth for All is about building societies that value prosperity for all rather than profit for the few on a finite planet fit for the 21st century. Let’s be clear, a more equal society benefits everyone, even the very rich.”
The book explores two scenarios beginning in 1980 and ending in 2100. These scenarios entitled Too Little, Too Late and The Giant Leap explore how population, economies, resource use, pollution wellbeing and social tensions might change this century based on decisions made this decade.
