Clarifications with Klarén: future societies
To build a sustainable society, there are a series of concrete (pun intended) goals that need to be achieved. These key drivers are universal and not specific to any one geographical location or cultural area. They are pillars upon which to construct the foundation of a more sustainable society.
And like a foundation, it needs to be even. Work for each of these four goals needs to be ongoing, with equal focus, energy, and funding, to make real progress. There is no sustainability silver bullet, no societal cure-all. These four goals need to be equally prioritized.
Polestar Head of Sustainability Fredrika Klarén outlines these goals above.

Design Fest Ghent, a new biennial design festival, showcases ground-breaking designs and sustainable innovations. Like the sweet-smelling, circular creation BreaZea.
