Project 2058: Helping build a sustainable future

This presentation will be given by Wendy McGuinness and members of the Sustainable Future team.

The world is changing and, as New Zealanders, we need to think about what this means for us and our future. Often strategic thinking only occurs in terms of the three-year election cycle, but this does not prepare us well for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Promoting long-term thinking, leadership and capacity-building to manage an uncertain future is critical.

To help address these challenges and opportunities, Sustainable Future is developing a vision of what a sustainable New Zealand may look like in the year 2058 and an overarching strategy to reach this vision - this is known as Project 2058. As part of this project, Sustainable Future is producing a range of outputs, including:
1. research reports on long-term sustainability issues in New Zealand;
2. interviews and a documentary on past future thinkers and how thinkers today see New Zealand's future;
3. the identification of 50 key characteristics, and the construction of a timeline which depicts these characteristics over time and explores their potential future influence;
4. development of future scenarios of how New Zealand may look in 50 years; and
5. a vision of an overarching National Sustainable Development Strategy that will help deliver a sustainable future for New Zealand.
Sustainable Future will be starting the scenario-building exercise in April. Their presentation will discuss Project 2058's journey to this point and the team's formative plans for the upcoming scenario-building process.
