The Sustainable Development Goals provide an aspirational narrative our future. We now need a vision for what that world looks like, we need evidence informed pathways to get there, and we need compelling, solution oriented narratives. Here I explore collaborative projects that approach these three aims. A project developing a compelling vision for what the world could look like with all 17 sustainable development goals met, a framework to funnel the deep knowledge on social, natural, and physical systems into a structure that will help us design evidence informed pathways, and a platform from which to develop the narratives.
