We are a global alliance of scientists, policy makers, business leaders and activists committed to building a better world, based on human ecological wellbeing rather then material growth.
We have all of the technologies we need to solve all of the crises facing us. Why aren’t we doing it? How do we overcome the gridlock of governments, inspire the best of the private sector to take more of a leadership role? How do we shift governments, companies and an economics profession obsessed with measuring and growing Gross National Product to shift to maximizing total well being?
