How Technology could Contribute to a Sustainable Future
The integration of scenario-planning has been a valuable tool to generate discussions and policy options about conceivable paths toward balanced global futures, as distinct challenges earmark the strategic directions and leadership needed to carry out change with sustainable development.

As we move further into the consolidation of globalization patterns, it has become clear that sustainable development is a notion to be reckoned with, as it addresses critical alternatives in terms of choices (individual/collectives), growth and the socio-economic development of nations.
In this regard, a framework developed by the Great Transition Initiative (GTI) has been touching these dialogues with an aim toward the analysis of diverse interpretations behind transformational praxis and the constructs of political, institutional, human/environmental and systems-thinking archetypes.

And amid those series an interesting component was laid-out about the role of science & technology, and how advances in scientific knowledge could be leveraged for greater benefits or impacts on community development.
Of course, these are perspectives that involve important policy changes to tackle balanced industrial development in line with economic and social progress. These elements linked to increased concerns and demands brought by rapid urbanization, food security, differences between rural and urban standards of living and unequal distribution of income.
As a matter of fact, those lines draw the complexity of the challenges, and the needs to generate appropriate technologies, and identify what technology would be necessary to gauge tomorrow’s needs as they evolve in fast changing environments.
