What a nice thing to read in a UN report:

There needs to be a shift away from economic models that value growth for growth’s sake, toward a new mindset that respects planetary boundaries, recognizes the economy as a subset of nature, and supports the concept of living in harmony with nature (reflected in SDG targets 8.4, 12.2 and 12.8, in particular)
