Caring for spaceship Earth
Earthmnd’s vision for sustainable prosperity traces back to the Kenneth Boulding and his path-breaking concept of “spaceship earth”.
For Boulding, sustainability required the transformation of our increasingly globalised ‘cowboy’ society. As he 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 on sustainability are still very much worth reading today:
