How do we bring about a transition to sustainability? The easy answer is to say that we need to ‘think out of the box’ to find solutions and strategies to bring about the profound changes needed. All well and good – but the trouble is that the boxes are part of what needs to change. All our thinking is, to a greater or lesser extent, path-dependent, locked onto versions of the trajectories of the twentieth century. How do we change it? How do we change ourselves?

“We have little time, and much to accomplish.”
