A desirable future critically depends on our ability to ensure the supply of key resources while simultaneously respecting planetary boundaries. The authors of the paper "Living within the Safe Operating Space: a Vision for a Resource Efficient Europe" develop a reflection on what life could look like in 2050 based on a safe and fair global resource use, a sustainable society and a transformed economy. The authors focus in particular on a necessary shift of values, innovation and management regimes. Member of the team of authors are Meghan O'Brien and Henning Wilts from the Wuppertal Institute. The article is published in the European Journal of Futures Research and can be read on Springer website.
