Green Growth

by Daimen Hardie on November 25, 2015

Problem:​ Business as usual is what got us into this trouble. Economic development based on unrestrained use of the Earth's resources, especially fossil fuels, has been status quo for the last 100+ years, and now we're paying for it.

​Opportunity:​ It's time to disrupt the status quo. It's time for a third industrial revolution, one that decouples the growth of the economy from the destruction of the planet. Low-carbon, regenerative solutions such as renewable energy, cradle to cradle design, and the sharing economy are just a few of the innovations now unseating old school economics.

​Future:​ Which nations will emerge as leaders in this new era of 'green growth' innovation? Climate changes everything – so who’s leading change?
