An economy for the future: valuing the long term

Fellowship events / Online


Online event: Oceania timing - 8pm AEDT/10pm NZDT

  • Circular economy
  • Sustainability

Join us for the sixth event in Re-claiming the Future - an online discussion series looking at how we can nurture our ability to think, plan and dream for the long-term.

Our growth-oriented economic models present a major barrier to long-term thinking, and allow policy-makers to overvalue the needs of the present at the expense of future generations’ wellbeing. In this event, we explore how we can rethink the nature of value within our systems, and how we can build circular and regenerative economies that enable people and planet to thrive.

About the series

Re-claiming the Future is a fortnightly online event series curated by RSA Oceania and the RSA Sustainability Network. For the full event listings or to book a series ticket, please visit the series page.

Humanity stands at a critical juncture: our political, economic and societal decision making is focused on the short-term and is threatening the long-term survival of our species and our planet. The path we choose from here will determine the legacy we leave for future generations. Now, more than ever, we urgently need to expand our time perspectives – to think and plan for the long term so can we reclaim the future for coming generations.
