Sustainability Science Centre can now present a new Sustainability Lecture 30 October 2020, with Olivier De Schutter on:
The Enabling State: Building the Ecological Transition on Social Innovations!
* * *
The societal transformation required to remain within planetary boundaries requires changes at multiple levels, in various sectors of society, and in a variety of contexts. Accelerating collective learning through local experimentation in social innovations shall be essential to that effect.
To support this, we need an Enabling State: a form of government that could empower local communities to experiment with new ways of producing, consuming or sharing, to win the race against the degradation of the ecosystems
