In the 1960s the American counterculture magazine Whole Earth Catalog presented a self-sufficient, ecological lifestyle for the future, in which both ancient methods and the latest technologies would play a role. Fifty years later we might wonder: is it even possible to develop sustainable, environment-friendly technologies that can serve everybody? And how can we scale-up these technologies on a global level? We need an inclusive, holistic approach to bring about structural change.

In practice, this means that we need to take into account all the inhabitants of the earth — even those already affected by climate change. From their respective research projects and backgrounds, the speakers in this panel argue in favour of a broader understanding of technology, embracing existing Indigenous knowledge and a new relationship between humans and nature.
