Shaping Tomorrow’s World: Website Launch

Posted in Opinion, Research, Seeking by Kate Archdeacon on May 17th, 2011

From climate change to peak oil and food insecurity, our societies are confronted with many serious challenges that, if left unresolved, will threaten the well-being of present and future generations, and the natural world. This website is dedicated to discussion of those challenges and potential solutions based on scientific evidence and scholarly analysis. Our goal is to provide a platform for re-examining some of the assumptions we make about our technological, social and economic systems.

The posts on this site are generally written by domain experts, specialists and scholars with an interest in these problems and we hope they will generate informed and constructive debate. We will archive seminal papers and posts for future reference.

We are now open for conversation. Our initial posts provide a preview of what’s to come. At the moment, most of the categories of topics remain to be filled, and we need to take up more policy issues. This will all happen over time—we have lots more content coming over the next few weeks and months. Just sign up to our RSS feed and you’ll stay informed.
