Executive Summary

General global volatility – be it environmental, economic or social – is a systemic issue we all now have to contend with.

Though the numerous great challenges we face are mostly recognised and understood, and though solutions do exist to address them, they are yet to be widespread and common amongst all areas of society.

Vision 2050 maps the path to reaching a sustainable 2050 and The Future We Want provides the visioning capacity to see and live that future today.

However, we are still bound by our silos (business, NGOs, governments) and a new tools and a new capacity are needed to change the way we have the conversations, and therefore the enabling conditions, to reach this sustainable future.

On the road to Rio+20, we must ensure that these new ideas and behaviours are in place to ensure success. The conference proposes to critically bring together the “what” with the “how” by tackling big questions in ways that will generate the guidelines for achieving a new paradigm.

The conference is created as a partnership between Tomorrow’s Company, ICAEW and draws together The Future We Want and Vision 2050 in the lead up to Rio+20.

The conference proposes to critically bring together the “what” with the “how” by tackling big questions in ways that will generate the guidelines for achieving the sustainable future for business. The conference will make a distinctive contribution to enable businesses, government and the wider community to create the desired future.
