This chapter is informed by the view that facing a harsh climate future with wisdom and courage depends to a significant extent on our capacity to imagine the work required to build the bridge to a just and resilient zero-carbon future at emergency speed. Imagining this future becomes more difficult as emissions continue to rise, triggering increasingly dangerous climate tipping points. While the COVID-19 pandemic has provided a timely reminder of the speed with which unexpected shocks can derail the most confident predictions, the most likely outcome remains a far more challenging and hostile world. This further highlights the importance of imagining, visualising and creating political strategies and ways of life informed by the principles and goals of replenishment, resilience and regeneration.
