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.
