Human Power – The concept of planetary guard rails

How can we make global development possible without compromising our natural life-support systems, and which forms of damage must be avoided? These are some of the questions asked by the German Advisory Council on Global Change. The WBGU defined "planetary guard rails" which help to keep such existential damage at bay. This short film explains  the concept of guardrails.

More details about planetary guard rails can be found in the WBGU policy paper "Human Progress within Planetary Guardrails: a Contribution to the SDG Debate".
