Status and disobedience improve the world. Markets and traditions do the same. "DOMINO. Handbook for a sustainable world" shows us how it can work. Find out more about your daily needs and their potential for a future-oriented world with the new DOMINO app for the book from the W.I.R.E Think Tank.
If we want to meet the challenges of our time, we must take a look at our own day-to-day behaviour. Every day, whenever we satisfy our needs, we topple numerous dominos – and in so doing, we sometimes set surprising cascades in motion, sometimes even ones that have repercussions right around the world. Existing governmental, social and economic systems decide how these rows of dominos are arranged today, where they are going to fall, and what impact they will have. Yet what is behind each system is not something unapproachably abstract, it is we ourselves. In our everyday behaviour, each of us can change the way these rows of dominos are arranged and thus make the world more sustainable on both a small and a large scale.
"DOMINO" throws the spotlight on our daily lives. Use the DOMINO app to analyse 15 everyday activities and their significance for a sustainable world.
