Caring for spaceship Earth
Our vision of sustainable prosperity traces back to Kenneth Boulding’s path-breaking concept of “spaceship earth”. For Boulding, sustainability required the transformation of our increasingly globalised ‘cowboy’ society. As Boulding put it back in the 1960s: “We cannot have cowboys and Indians in a space ship, or even a cowboy ethic.” His seminal short essays says on sustainability are still very much worth reading today: Earth as a space ship and The economics of the coming spaceship earth.
In January 2012, the Ditchley Park Foundation organised a fascinating conference on how to make prosperity sustainable. The Director’s Note on the conference concluded that “it was noteworthy that those from the private sector seemed on the whole more optimistic than those from civil society or government. If the private sector are beginning to lead, and have the greatest capacity to make change happen, that at least is a good sign.” We agree.
