  • Sustainable development is the 21st Century’s wicked problem. For over 40 years, the world has known about ecological limits to economic growth and social limits to economic inequality.
  • Yet, our attempted solutions – mostly more efficient technologies – have reversed few unsustainable trends. So sustainability advocates now call for a paradigm shift, Great Transformation, radical change or system innovations - changes which evolve the current design of incentives, policies and institutions.
  • This book describes the path ahead. It combines system transformation research with political economy and change leadership insights when discussing the need for a great mindshift in how human wellbeing, economic prosperity and healthy ecosystems are understood, illustrating its nature through mapping pioneering practices and their commonalities.
