So wonderfully illustrated by Project Drawdown, here we see a graphic of rising and falling green house gas emissions. The point at which emissions begin reversing is referred to as the "moment of drawdown."
While, "sounding the alarm" is necessary to reach the moment of drawdown, the alarm is not the only thing that deserves attention.
The good news is, we now know the sources of green house gas emissions around the world - transportation, food & agriculture, energy, buildings, industry. This gives us an idea of where the solutions will emerge and what an emissions free future might look like.
These solutions are known as social innovations. We like to call them indicators of what it looks like when the future meets present.
Our theory of change is that vision isn't merely inspiration, it's information. And a collective vision of our desired destination is required to get there.
After all, energy flows where attention goes.
Future Meets Present is a social design company creating and curating indicators of an emerging sustainable future. In short, we're designing the world's vision board.
