With the convergence of multiple crisis on the planet, the UN has a bold, provocative strategic vision of the world in 2030. It’s a vision of an integrated sustainable development, within planetary boundaries, engaging thousands of stakeholders from all over the world and leaving no-one behind. Member states within the UN are realising that there is no more time to develop now and clean up later. May believes that despite the state of the world, if we don’t have a positive vision of the future, we will never get there. We need to activate this positive vision and communicate it to everybody we meet in order to co-create the new story.
