Feasta aims to identify the characteristics (economic, cultural and environmental) of a truly sustainable society, articulate how the necessary transition can be effected and promote the implementation of the measures required for this purpose.
Feasta believe that sustainability must benefit everyone in a society, rather than merely those who are financially or otherwise privileged. They consider a society to be sustainable if it can expect to survive for several hundreds of years without being forced to change because it is currently destroying or undermining something on which its survival crucially depends.
Feasta’s activities are based around a number of themes.
- The Risk-Resilience Network’s focus is on how to protect our welfare given existing and coming constraints (e.g. food security, energy and governance).
- Feasta’s Climate Group which has developed the theoretical underpinning for the Cap and Share campaign, which is proposing a system for cutting greenhouse gas emissions that should be reliable, equitable and bring about a reduction in global poverty.
- The Liquidity Network which aims to address the current liquidity problem – the slow-down in economic activity triggered by the credit crunch.
