It's About Time Manifesto


In the wake of the three design positions in the biennial - the ancestor, the accelerator and the activist - the curators of It's About Time drafted a manifesto with the following encouragements:

· Act upon climate change as a short-term problem 

· Root locally, resonate globally 

· Seize the transformative moment 

· Study systems: everything is connected 

· Think radical, act pragmatic 

· Create context for others to blossom 

· Develop capacities rather than knowledge 

· Connect to deep-time 

· Share value not profit 

· Scale up, scale out and scale deep 

· Design for desirable futures 

· Take time
