Tipping points occur not only in undesirable processes, but also in desirable contexts. Whilst human activities are pushing the planet towards negative tipping points, jeopardising the very foundations of human well-being on earth, there exists viable solutions that could keep the world on track – provided there’s robust support in policy, finance, and leadership for swift global implementation..
Together with business leaders, policymakers and scientists we’ll explore the positive tipping points on the horizon or already achieved, delving into the success factors driving these transformative moments.
