12 sustainability challenges

Metamorphosis has identified 12 stakes to move towards a more sustainable world :

  1. Access, for all, to basic needs (drinking water, energy, housing, healthcare) 
  2. Eradication of poverty and hunger
  3. Access, for all, to an adequate, healthy and environmentally-friendly food production achieved in fair conditions
  4. Eco-design of products and services
  5. Reduction of toxic and harmful substances for people and environment 
  6. Development of renewable and/or biosourced material
  7. Reduction of consumption of raw material, natural resources and scarce material
  8. Protection and restoration of natural ecosystems and related services
  9. Development of a low carbon footprint society
  10. Implementation of fair business ecosystems and supply chains that are environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable
  11. Development of financial and business channels favouring socially responsible investing and supporting systemic business ecosystems acting for a positive and living economy et bringing answers to sustainability challenges
  12. Governance models that regulate power among people and favour the active participation and contribution of all to the construction of their present...and their future

...And a world of sustainable solutions to these challenges progressively emerges, a new world to which Metamorphosis wants to contribute.

"We don't think a sustainable society need be stagnant, boring, uniform, or rigid. It need not be, and probably could not be, centrally controlled or authoritarian. It could be a world that has the time, the resources, and the will to correct its mistakes, to innovate, to preserve the fertility of its

planetary ecosystems. All over the world there are people who have entered into the exercise of imagining and bringing into being a sustainable world. They see it as a world to move toward not reluctantly, but joyfully, not with a sense of sacrifice, but a sense of adventure"
