The systems perspective is what interests me a lot to discuss. So thanks, Kylie Gomes for your comment. I think you are absolutely right in your observation and I will take it with me in the next articles.

Let’s phase out what really doesn’t serve us. Stop subsidizing what we don’t want! And distribute the proceeds evenly over all people and businesses innovating for the future we DO want. I like your explanation with the toothbrush.

Some people say, we already have all the technical solutions we need. Well, I don’t agree. There are many more nature-based solutions that can be explored and would bring much value to our world. We need to find solutions that keep our human living within planetary boundaries and we are definitely not there yet!

So, yes, let’s innovate and keep ourselves from technological lockins. Nature has biodiversity, we need diversity of solutions to really build a resilient world.

For anyone wanting to invent or innovate, this might be interesting reading. There are more buttons to turn than energy and material. Try turning the buttons structure, information or time… We might come up with really different solutions that improve our living…
