At THE NEW INSTITUTE we are optimistic that we can join together to reimagine the fundamental systems of society, politics, economy and humanity. We are at a fulcrum moment in time. Our lives and humanity are shaped by the many urgent crises we face. The climate crisis is a challenge and a symptom of our widespread failure to support life on earth with our behaviour and actions. We are locked in a cycle of overconsumption, with the exploitation and destruction of our natural resources. We face a future in a different world. The climate crisis is part of an interconnected series of crises. We need to fundamentally rethink and restructure our economies and our democracies if we want to preserve life on earth. A fulcrum can also be a turning point. We need to use our imagination to create the necessary impact. We need to build unlikely alliances. We need to act now and act boldly.
