In his own words...

Transformation is the visible and invisible process of unfolding and evolving… Humans and humanity will face several challenges that can enable significant shifts in the way that we see ourselves and the world, live our daily lives in our communities and integrate the living system that our planet is. Transformation will allow us to go beyond the new 17 Sustainable Developmental Goals in a much faster, interesting and joyful way.
