Vision and mission
It's 2030. Our economy is has become largely sustainable. We finally realized that our economy is limited by the borders of society and society by the borders of the planet. The economy is propelled entirely on sustainable energy sources en makes sure that valuable natural resources will always be available for future generations. Waste does not exist anymore. The old disposable economy has transformed into a circular economy.
3D-printing and other innovations have enabled digital transfer and local production on demand, largely reducing transport flows around the globe. Furthermore, the remaining transport has become electric. Products are rarely sold anymore, like in the past, but are now part of sustainable services. Usage has become more important than property and our identity is based on who we are and not on what we own.
We have protected ourselves well against the consequences of climate change and further global warming has been stopped. Pollution from the past has been cleaned up by clever biological technologies. New agricultural techniques, sustainable nature management and changed food habits took care of an increase of biodiversity and abundant water and food for everyone.
Countries and governments have grown up, settled their disputes and now work together in order to maintain the sustainable society, which first of all aims at achieving happiness for all people. Extreme poverty and excessive income gaps have disappeared. We now have an empathic society in which respect for each other and human scale are essential. As a consequence, structural violence has been eliminated and forced migration has come to an end.
The Global Goals of the UN have motivated governments, businesses and citizens to undertake action and have been achieved before 2030.
The economy only deals with a smal part of the functioning of society and society functions within the ecosystem of the planet. Where limits are surpassed, there will be friction and destabilization.

Sustainable cities and regions
Buildings, cities and regions have become ever more self supporting in food supply, energy and resources. The built environment and nature have become more intertwined. They are not conflicting anymore but generate synergy. Through a smart combination of free public transport and clean individual means of transportation, people are more mobile then ever before.
Buildings and vehicles have become mostly electric and are now interconnected by smart grids. Cars and trucks are being driven largely autonomously on highways. Noise and air pollution are issues from the past, traffic is safer than ever before and usage of road infrastructure is highly efficient.
Citizens are very self-reliant. They are closely involved with their environment and their neighborhoods and contribute to them according to their possibilities. Self-government is the rule. The role of local and regional governments shifted from regulating to stimulating and facilitating.
Health care has shifted from impersonal colossal organizations towards personal attention and support of individual needs of people at a human scale. Besides some specialized health care institutions, mutual aid has become a very important factor in health care. Clever apps take care of a good match between supply and demand.
Sustainable companies and organizations
Thanks to modern communication techniques, the world has become very transparent. Partly due to this, companies and organizations operate in a socially responsible way. Entrepreneurs now recognize that the focus on sustainability has not been a hype, but offered lots of opportunities to make their business more future-proof. By anticipating to changes in society and inventing clever solutions which contribute to a sustainable society, business flourishes more than ever before.
Changes have come fast. Companies who knew best how to adapt are the winners of today. Above all these are small and medium sized companies (SMEs), who collaborate in flexible networks and make clever use of modern communication technology. The network-SME sector has become the engine of the sustainable economy.
