The three components of sustainability intelligence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This essay presents the concept of sustainability intelligence as a possible response to the current unsustainable course of society. We expound on the three components shaping this concept – naive intelligence, native intelligence, and narrative intelligence – and argue why they could thus serve as inspiration and key reference points for rising to our collective sustainability challenge. The essay ends with a brief exploration of the wider practical, policy and political implications of the concept.
