Caring for spaceship Earth

Our 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 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 on sustainability are still very much worth reading today:

Earth as a space ship

The economics of the coming spaceship earth

Today, we translate this vision into promoting BioTools for business.
