Overview

The planetary phase of history has begun, its ultimate shape profoundly uncertain. Will global development veer toward a world of impoverished people, cultures, and nature? Or will there be a 'Great Transition' toward a future of enriched lives, human solidarity and environmental sustainability? This essay examines the historic roots of this fateful crossroads for world development, and scans different scenarios that can emerge from contemporary forces and contradictions. The book synthesizes the insights of the Global Scenario Group. Convened in 1995 by the Stockholm Environment Institute, the Group engages diverse participants in an exploration of the requirements for a sustainable world.
