“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” – Native American Proverb
With a desire to learn how people view their future, we are reaching out to all walks of life, asking one question
. Collated by a small group of “what is your sustainability vision for 2030” Sustainable Design Thinkers, this is a CALL TO ACTION, for a global response to the above question. By sharing our visions collectively, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of how we might design for a brighter tomorrow.
To be more informed about how people are feeling about the future at this moment in time. To provide a platform to share our concerns, hopes and ideas. To highlight the diversity of voices, both locally and globally. To present a shared vision of what the future on earth can look like.
CALL to ACTION Join us! take a photograph of yourself holding a sign with one clear and simple message: “My 2030 sustainability vision is ______________” Please include your global location, occupation, and age (optional) with your photo. We look forward to creating a new future vision together. Thank you for joining this global call out!
