Triggering Virtuous Cascades

Institute researchers scan the possibility frontier to identify interventions that could produce “virtuous cascades” of change—sequences of causally linked, nonlinear changes that generate a net benefit to society. We then work with partners to translate our research findings into practical initiatives for action. This scanning exercise has generated two major projects to date:

  1. Ultradeep Geothermal
  2. National Dialogue on Canada's Futures
