VISIONS OF FEASIBLE, DESIRABLE AND RESILIENT NET-ZERO FUTURES

As part of COP26, we asked people in six regions to imagine a globally net-zero, climate-resilient future.

Here’s what they came up with.

Futures We Want Header
6 regions.
4 THEMES.
Countless ideas.

To create a globally net-zero, climate-resilient world by 2050, there are two things we need to know:

  • What solutions are feasible
  • What is desirable

This project brings together both.

Six groups of academic experts created reports on their region’s possible futures. Then six groups of citizens shared their hopes and ideas based on those reports.

This gives us something new: visions of a globally net-zero, climate-resilient world that people actually want to live in.
