‘An EU-funded think tank project named the One Planet Economy Network (OPEN:EU) produced a document in 2011 which has received no attention at all in mainstream or alternative media outlets. Until now, that is.
The document titled Scenarios towards a One Planet Economy in Europeconsists of several scenarios or “paths” which the EU may follow to reach an envisioned “One Planet Economy”. Funded by the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme and the World Wildlife Fund the document meticulously follows an Agenda 21-type scenario. Within the document, saturated with terms like “sustainability” and “ecological footprint”, the author’s outline four different paths towards what the group describes as a “one planet economy”. As is stated at the very beginning of the report:
“There are four narratives that provide alternative, albeit not necessarily ideal, visions of the transition toward a One Planet Economy in Europe by 2050. They present both an illustration of life in Europe in 2050 and the policy settings that are necessary to support the transition to this common end point under different assumptions about the future.”’
