Enabling a Sustainable Society & Environment
Our world is a dynamic inter-connected system. Understanding how to balance society’s ever-growing needs with nature’s fragility requires a new and better approach to planning and governance.
Addressing the World's Complex 'Wicked' Problems
Humanity’s increasing need for food and energy is threatening economic, social and environmental sustainability. By 2050, over 40% of the world population, 3.9 billion people, could be living in areas under severe water stress. The number of annual deaths caused by pollution around the world is now greater than malaria and HIV combined. They include 1.4 million people a year in China and 650,000 in India.
The simultaneous challenge of protecting nature, while accommodating the demands of population growth, requires a new type of open platform that can link and dynamically govern diverse ecosystems – engineered, natural and social.
A Sentient Hub is an open convergence platform that unifies engineered, natural and social Ecosystems to improve planning, governance & optimisation.
Sentient Hubs’ mission is to improve the way we address the complex, ‘wicked problems’ affecting the sustainability of our society, environment and economies. We do this through a convergence platform that enables multi-disciplinary scenario planning and inter-domain governance.
‘Smart’ technologies alone won’t get us there. They’re too piecemeal.
A Holistic Approach to Planning & Governance
By extending beyond GDP as a key measure of wealth, Sentient Cities offer a broader approach that includes environmental impact and quality of life. We believe that a fulfilling life is aligned with a good relationship with nature and other people.
Sentient Hubs help decision makers improve their understanding of the impact of planned developments on an ecosystem-wide basis. By enabling collaboration, transparency and better governance, we ensure sustainable practices and outcomes over time.
The ability to harmonise the inter-dependencies between natural systems like weather, and communities’ demand for transport, energy and water, offers new opportunities for improved ‘ecosystem-wide’ performance.
