About the Book
“Before This Decade Is Out” is an international initiative by Futur/io Institute to mobilize our community to engage in committing to sustainable actions and climate goals within our decade to 2030 – to set the foundations for a sustainable habitat. We owe this to our future generations – and to ourselves.
This book is a collection of international voices, articles, excerpts, interviews, and statements from our community of thought leaders, climate ambassadors, shapers, and passionate individuals and experts.
The goal of this book is to inspire humans towards action, and also be able to:
- Capture a set of actionable insights on how to make a difference at scale in combatting the climate crisis
- Identify key issues for leaders to understand and manage the challenge and opportunity
- Leverage a global community to agree on and provide scalable approaches balancing societal, governance, or private sector challenges
Meet some of the authors
You, me – it starts with every one of us.
60 years ago, John F. Kennedy set the goal of landing a man on the moon “before this decade is out”. They did not know how – but they knew it had to be done. Today, we all need to be as ambitious and save our planet. And unlike then, we do have a lot of insights, knowledge, and technologies at hand. We have advanced scientifically – gained a lot of insights and knowledge, developed new technologies and are globally connected.
Today, it seems, it is more about the commitment, more about our real-life contributions to enable the change we need.
This Book aims to raise awareness on this decade’s major climate crisis and inspire action on all levels, from individuals to communities, across industries, nations, and organizations.
Developing new ideas, methods and products that suit the needs of today and temorrow.
Big problems demand radical solutions and a bold, people and planet-centric leadership.
