There is no doubt that profound changes of our way of living and working are taking place and that the accustomed geopolitical and geoeconomic relations, based on Western hegemony, crumble. Will these transformations increase poverty and hunger in the Global South and endanger democracy and human rights in the Global North? Can these transformations be shaped by coordinated and goal-oriented collective agency? What are the barriers in specific provisioning systems, like care, food and electronics, to enable a good life within planetary boundaries? What are desired transformations? And what are effective and feasible transformation pathways? Which narratives support and hinder such a social-ecological transformation? Which alliances are necessary to intervene into provisioning processes to empower a social-ecological transformation?
