Responding to the climate emergency: The time is up for incremental change
Insights 02 Jul 2019
Continuing to work through gradual, incremental changes through ‘innovation-as-usual’ is not a sufficient response to the climate emergency.
We need an innovation model capable of triggering a more fundamental transformation of economic, social and financial systems.
For this reason, EIT Climate-KIC is designing ‘deep demonstrations’ of what is possible at the level of whole systems transformation when innovation is collaborative, based on rapid-learning and coordinated across multiple levers of change like policy, finance, technology, education.
