    FutureWAVE is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization creating media that inspires people to see that the wave of the future is not war and ecological omnicide but rather a world that works for everyone. It was founded by director/producer Arthur Kanegis, who had previously produced the Paul Newman/Haskell Wexler film “War Without Winners.”

    Giive est un mouvement sans but lucratif qui souhaite favoriser la réconciliation et le rapprochement entre les non autochtones et les autochtones de façon concrète et ludique.

    ​Nous croyons que ce processus de réconciliation doit être favorisé par les citoyens, sans devoir attendre le gouvernement pour mettre en place des projets de rapprochement. C’est pour cette raison que nous avons choisi l’économie sociale, afin de ne pas dépendre de subventions gouvernementales pour la mise en place de nos projets.

    Giive is a non-profit movement that wants to promote reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in a positive way.

    ​We believe that this reconciliation process must be promoted by citizens, without waiting for the government to implement reconciliation projects. This is why we have chosen the social economy, in order to not depend on the government for the development of our projects.

    There is strong recognition today that current models and practices of development are suboptimal for most people. Children born now will bear ever increasing economic, social and environmental debts. The newly proposed Anthropocene epoch characterized by high human footprint over vital planetary subsystems does not yet bring wealth / health / well-being to all, let alone abundance.

    If even by exploiting Earth’s resources to their limits we fail to satisfy fundamental needs, our development model is obviously broken. Of exceptional concern are the tipping points beyond which no amount of capital (human, social or financial) would bring back the natural dynamic equilibrium necessary for humanity to thrive. According to a recent Guardian article: “Recent research found that just five more years of carbon dioxide emissions at current levels will virtually wipe out any chance of restraining temperatures to a 1.5°C increase and avoid runaway climate change.”

    Our sustainability awareness seems, from a collective operational perspective, to remain too often at the level of “old” 3R thinking: as if “Reduce – Reuse – Recycle” sufficed. While these remain necessary, they are insufficient to shield us from the increasing multi-dimensional threat of disasters such as parching droughts, rampaging floods, raging fires, destructive hurricanes and typhoons, all supercharged by climate change. Why not upgrade to a “new” 3R set of guiding principles such as “Regeneration in the Environmental sphere ~ Respect in the Social sphere ~ Resilience in the Economic sphere”?

    Humanity’s $100 trillion question becomes: “What do we need to consistently do differently / disrupt, to stop current trends and avoid crossing planetary boundaries beyond which “charged-up” climate disruption becomes unmanageable for human society?”

    Failing to act effectively and in a timely manner means strong upheaval, since climate change is a threat multiplier, a poverty magnifier, jeopardising the ability of institutions to peacefully protect human rights and democracy.

    To jump-start the process, we reason that notwithstanding other innovative initiatives, a “Sane World 2100” vision i.e. an uninterruptedly suitable terrestrial habitat for humanity, means reliably yet speedily transitioning to a post-carbon society. The Paris Agreement signals that all nations officially recognize that we cannot afford inaction, which brings us closer to civilisation-crippling climatic tipping points. All States thus recognize that human society has to stop saturating the biosphere with lithospheric carbon.

    The resulting strong decarbonisation sustainability effort requires peacefully re-engineering all carbon-emitting sectors of society in less than two generations. How can this be done?

    The “Sane World 2100” mission, answering to the corresponding vision, calls for the concept of “Post-Carbon Engineering”:

    1. to be defined in an inclusive participatory way to ensure large buy-in, and

    2. to be systematically yet flexibly implemented in an incentivized,
    sector-strategic way.

    The first point ensures defining guiding principles, trade-off criteria and indicators for success in a way that builds trust and resilient approaches.
    The second point ensures fostering the means to success, i.e. making sure we avoid the “Too Little Too Late” syndrome so that we can make sensible choices before biophysical climatic constraints become overwhelmingly large, thus restricting our options.

    Post-Carbon Engineering Project GOALS
    [2016-2019 – before Paris Agreement enters into force]:

    1. to foster an understanding in the engineering community and civil society about the vital role of “Post-Carbon Engineering” in helping to peacefully build a “post-carbon” society within two generations [years 1-2-3] ;

    2. to publish & maintain a definition / guiding principles / strategic guidelines website, an online sharing community, an online database about evolving / innovative practices of “Post-Carbon Engineering” [with COP22+ global events as dissemination catalysts]; [years 1-2-3];

    3. to study & report on the impact “Post-Carbon Engineering” practices has on helping attain Nationally Determined Contributions (Paris Agreement target objectives) by 2050; to pre-empt a “Slow Start ending in Death March” syndrome that makes extreme engineering (e.g. geo-engineering) more palatable [years 2-3];

    4. to foster change in the engineering curriculum in universities [in Canada and worldwide] so that undergraduate engineering projects refocus on fast, fair and strongly effective decarbonisation [years 1-2-3];

    5. to study and report on how cities may nimbly and effectively attain their sustainability goals by spearheading the transition to a “post-carbon” society, contributing to their smart city and urban energy / water efficiency strategies [years 2-3];

    6. to launch and operate a “Strategic Innovation/Change Lab” using the Living Lab methodology to pilot experimental initiatives, convening public, private and institutional spheres [years 2-3];

    7. to involve local and global engineering communities to invite them to support “Post-Carbon Engineering”, evolve it and use it as a best practice [years 1-2-3].
