An Approach Towards a Sustainable Future for the Planet via Wholistic Innovation
A book by Dieter Brockmeyer being Volume ONE of the Diplomatic World Institute Publishing Series, available on Amazon: Covid-19 changed the way we live dramatically – and it accelerates the speed of change. This provides new risk but also new opportunities. We need to innovate not only in a technical sense but in every part of our lives, societies, the economy. It has an impact on our culture, finance, and health systems.
This provides the chance to tackle the planet’s burning problems and to come up with solutions faster and more sustainably as it would be in “normal” times. We need a wholistic approach to handle all this. This book gives an idea of what “wholistic innovation” can be. Since everything is connected it will be necessary to include the full picture from the beginning to avoid that what is a positive outcome in a local context will unfold much bigger negative effects in more distant sectors. The book tries not to provide a ready-made set of tools to improve our planet. The goal is to initiate a debate and a spark to inflame a process that in the end will provide these tools. The author takes a close look at the problems we are faced with in all relevant sectors, discusses the impact of Covid-19, and hints at possible solutions. The book provides many facts for each sector and the links opening the space for additional individual research.
