If we are to avoid system-wide breakdowns in nature, society and the economy, we need to make six great transitions to thriving. These go beyond the band-aid responses to our global environmental, social and economic challenges that have been so typical of the sustainability agenda over the past 30 years. To be sure, progress has been made, yet the entangled problems of climate change, economic inequality, biodiversity loss and social injustice have been getting worse, not better.
How does the world really work? How does nature function? How do societies change? How do economies rise and fall? These are questions that have led me to a lifetime of enquiry and a career in sustainability. After more than 30 years of wrestling and wrangling with theories and practices, I still don’t have all the answers, but I do have a map with clues to where the treasure is buried. The treasure is thriving – the ways in which nature can regenerate, societies can flourish, and economies can prosper.

I call it THRIVING and I tell the positive story of this bubbling revolution in my book of the same title. But I won’t lie – we are in a race for our lives. Our choices matter now more than ever. The decisions we make and the actions we take in the next 10 years will determine whether our life support systems break down or break through.
