Creating a Prosperous Future - ACT NOW

We can create a prosperous future that provides food, water and energy for the 10 billion people that are expected by 2050.  But to avoid dangerous climate change and achieve sustainable development we need to embed a fundamental reality into the way we think about our economies, business models and lifestyles: All our endeavors must recognize that the Earth's natural capital is finite.
 

Five recommendations you can endorse: 

  • Preserve the Earth's biodiversity and restore key ecological processes necessary for food, water and energy security, as well as climate change resilience and adaptation.
  • Make production systems that lower humanity's ecological footprint to within the limits of the Earth's carrying capacity. This entails significant reductions in the use of land, water, energy and other natural resources.
  • Make global consumption patterns conform to the Earth's biocapacity.
  • Stop the short term profit focused thinking that leads to over-exploitation of resources and to the destruction of ecosystems. See the very significant long-term benefits of protecting natural capital.
  • Establish equitable resource governance to shrink and share our resource use so that it conforms to the Earth's regenerative capacity. In addition, sustainable efforts should be made to promote health and education, as well as improve access to food, water and energy. Finally, we need a new definition of well-being and success that includes personal, societal and environmental health.

VIDEO - Global Citizen

What makes a Global Citizen?
As Global Citizens, we stand against the greatest injustice of our time: extreme poverty. Because we know that a world that deprives 1.3 billion people of their basic rights and opportunities is unjust, and unacceptable.
