Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity was published in English and German in September 2022 and is now also available in Swedish, Japanese, and Italian. Further language versions will be published soon.
We have crossed a number of planetary boundaries and widespread inequality causes instability for the planet and our societies. Earth4All presents five extraordinary turnarounds – the minimum actions we need to take now to achieve wellbeing for all on a relatively stable planet.
The book is based on a two-year research collaboration project, bringing together leading scientists and modellers with economists from around the world. Main contributors include Johan Rockström, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Anders Wijkman, Honorary president of The Club of Rome & member of the International Resource Panel, and David Collste, Postdoc at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
“The Earth4All message is of particular importance in Sweden at this moment in time because we had a change of government recently whose ambitions with regard to both climate change, ecosystem decline and helping the poor are put into question. Furthermore, Sweden is a country where conventional economists are more conventional than in most countries. The belief in conventional growth is cemented and there is little openness for the kind of approaches entertained by Earth4All,” commented Wijkman.
