Time to Transform the Future of Sustainability

The degree of systemic change and uncertainty COVID-19 has brought is altering the deepest levels of our assumptions, values and worldviews. From our systems work, we know that the deepest changes come from shifts at these levels, because they allow the shifting of the foundational narratives that we use to make sense of the world, to order our societies, and to organise collective action.

To help navigate this extraordinary time, and to help us understand what this might mean for the Dynamics for the decade ahead, we have identified four broad trajectories emerging out of the COVID-19 discontinuity, characterised by narratives that arise from very different basic sets of assumptions and mindsets.
