Transformation through Experimentation - Juha Leppänen
After the current crises pass, climate crisis still exists. We have a lot of knowledge on how to tackle climate change, but we’re lagging behind in how societies should look like in the future. For meaningful action, we need to reimagine how our societies operate: how we live, how we move, how we interact. Yet when we are able to imagine better futures, our institutions are unable to transform. Governments are a clear example, where one of their key purposes is to maintain stability. We need new capabilities for governments to be able to push transformative agendas such as carbon neutrality. Policy experimentation enables governments to learn from their mistakes when pushing through big reforms and at the same time enable politicians to explore also radical policy proposals that are needed for societies of the future.
