Tellus Institute on scenarios and the Great Transition

In the mid-90’s the Tellus Institute and Stockholm Environmental Institute engaged in some detailed scenario planning, and their three future paths—Barbarism, Conventional Worlds, Great Transition—look very similar to our Breakdown/MuddleThrough/Breakthrough framing. Since then, Tellus has been active as a voice for the Great Transitions scenarios, including recent analysis of whether it remains viable; see the links on the right side of this page for these aspirational writings as well as more recent assessments of all the scenarios. See Tellus’ early scenarios and key articles.

To dig deeper into their current work, see the Great Transition Initiative website.
