Socio-ecological disruption is no longer a prediction; it is a reality,
punctuated by crises. In response, we produce sustainable development, a
prescription for sobriety and rising levels of ecoanxiety. But what if we were
on the wrong track? Scientific reports agree that the twenty-first century
will be turbulent. Our only certainty is that uncertainty will persist and
that it will increase. In the face of such fluctuation, control, optimization
and performance are locking us into a very fragile and narrow path. Robustness
– keeping the system stable despite fluctuations – is the operational response
to turbulence. Unlike performance, robustness opens up possibilities and
reconnects us to living organisms, which are robust in essence. Furthermore,
recent advances in biology also provide us with an important key: robustness
is built first and foremost on heterogeneity, redundancy, randomness, waste,
slowness, incoherence... in short, robustness is the antithesis of
performance. The shift towards robustness reverses all the paradigms of our
time and helps us move beyond an epidemic of burnout. With no regrets.
