We Work, We Share, We Care – Value Creation in an Era of Climate Disruption

This book documents and further develops the futures prototype We Work, We Share, We Care created together with Malmö-based visual artist Mariella Ottosson and financed by the Swedish Innovation Agency, Vinnova. The book uses a narrative told by a person called Marta as a possible future. It’s a letter from three or so generations into the future.

To imagine a world where work needs to have a purpose and take care of our ecosystems, the inspiration has come from signals. These include how most millennials would take a pay cut to work at a environmentally responsible company; president Biden’s proposal for a Civilian Climate Corps that would employ thousands of young people to address climate change, strengthen natural defences and maintain public lands; and the call for a planetary consciousness to create solidarity and rights beyond nation states. The book seeks to inspire new imaginations beyond the dystopian-utopian binary when it comes to climate change.
