Antropoceno XXXV – Governação Global

We probed how planetary boundaries interact, learning for example that the stability of the climate system depends entirely on the way we manage land, water, and oceans, proving that in fact the planetary boundaries seem to be like three musketeers – all for one, one for all.

We need to simply be sustainable stewards of all the components of the earth system. But we also discussed in depth that biophysical boundaries cannot guide us toward sustainability alone. We need to stay within a just and fair safe operating space, connecting the human dimension with the biophysical challenges of global sustainability.

We’ve been pulling in the latest thinking from very, very important experts in their areas, such as Kate Raworth, who developed the doughnut economy model of connecting a social floor to the biophysical ceiling of planetary boundaries.

We’ve been discussing a bit more in detail of how to reconnect human development to the biosphere and staying within a safe budget on all of the planetary boundaries.

We’ve also introduced the concept of peak everything and how resource constraints couple to the boundaries provided by tipping point analysis related to planetary boundaries.

Now we’ll move into a module focusing on governance, focusing on pathways to success and also the grand transitions we face in energy, food systems, technology, and urban areas.

I’m sure you have many many ideas of what planetary boundary thinking means for governance, for democracy, for equity, for transparency. So please do share your ideas, opinions on the forum to keep a lively discussion forward.
