Humans. The new force of nature.
Welcome to the Anthropocene epoch, where humans are now the dominant force affecting our planet.
We do lots of good things, but are also responsible for a destabilised climate, forced migrations and vanishing species. The future worries many, with predictions that in the next few decades there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans, and that robots will replace much of our workforce.
We see the problems building, but often feel helpless. It’s as though we suffer from ‘locked-in syndrome’ – conscious, but unable to move.
To solve such ‘wicked problems’, we must open our minds.
The worst of times can be the best of times to drive change. Volans helps business leaders open their minds to new possibilities, relationships and business models. It is time we stopped backing degeneration and started investing in regeneration.
