Only more extreme economic and behavioural changes will allow the world to achieve all 17 Sustainable Development Goals together.
~Club of Rome 2018

The problem

“The generation that destroys the environment is not the generation that pays the price. That is the problem.” ~ Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
