How can we revamp our economies and invest the future?
Isn’t it too late to escape capitalism? Digital economy, circular and sharing models aren’t they demonstrating how we can break the bond between economic activity and emissions? Is it necessary to put a price on nature? Where should we put our money now to really invest in the future?

Economic models have largely been the key organist principle around which societies are built. What is it about our current model that has locked us into a course which appears to be disastrous for both human happiness and planetary well being? Is it possible to transition peacefully and what would that look like? Or, must we end in chaotic revolution to force change?
