In preparing for the June 2012 Rio+20 Conference, the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Global Sustainability released its report

Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A future worth choosing

which offers key considerations on possible ways to define and implement sustainability. The report underlines that there is a broad range of options and opportunities for mankind to re-develop and actively shape its future, and that participation is a key pre-requisite in doing so. This is in line with the findings on the Great Transformation.

As Jorgen Norgard phrased it many years ago: It may not be cost-effective to save the world, but we may decide to do so anyway.
