Visions and Pathways for a Hopeful Future
A Great Transition to a future of enriched lives, human solidarity, and environmental sustainability is possible.
The Great Transition Initiative is a growing international network of scholars and activists that analyzes alternative scenarios and charts a path to a hopeful future.
At once rigorous and inspiring, the Great Transition story brings the message that we can create a better world if we shift our values and transform our institutions.
Critical to this transition is growing public awareness of the dangers ahead and the need to revise our ways of living – and living together – on this planet. In this, our time of choice, we need a vast movement of global citizens to carry forward a Great Transition.
