The new special edition of the Green European Journal, 2049: Open Future, is out now and available in print and online!
While the pace of the present day can cloud the vision, casting out our gaze to the future allows a bigger picture to emerge.
This special edition goes beyond any one theme, looking to the future to imagine the Europe(s) to be in 2049.
Featuring essays, stories and interviews complemented by infographics, the edition seeks to capture life and society in 2049: from the evolution of the internet and reinvention of monetary systems, to ideas for tomorrow such as Doughnut Economics and Universal Basic Income, to developing a circular fashion industry, rethinking mobility challenges and reflecting on the prospects of rewilding, to reshaping our lives and habits in the face of the climate crisis.
With this special edition, the Green European Journal contends that the politics of tomorrow start with the politics of today. If we can envisage, design and embrace a brighter, open future, we just might get one too.
2049: Open Future is now available here on the GEF website or on the Journal’s website, where you can read the edition in its entirety or download the full PDF.
