In 2015, Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-Chair of the Club of Rome, invited Lars Engelhard to join this ambitious project. 'Come On!' shows what can be done to develop a more sustainable world. Members of the club are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity. In his previous academics and business profession, Lars observed various notable changes in our society encouraging him to interlink technology, politics, economics and sociology.
Club of Rome members are worried about trade-offs in the 17 UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. On the other hand, they are enthusiastic about the Pope Francis’ Laudato Si encyclical. We are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity.
The conclusion: we need to develop a new Enlightenment that can profoundly transform the philosophical basis of society. We advocate more holistic thinking and address sprouting changes in our society, driven by the complex interdependencies of technology, economics and politics.
Come On! is announcing the 50th anniversary of the Club of Rome.
