This paper surveys the current status quo of societal knowledge about transformation towards sustainability. Visions are central for policy processes and human development in general, since we cannot discuss terms such as “progress”, “growth” or “innovation” of society without considering our dreams and desires and how we want to achieve them. Basically, visions consist of an elaborated description of a desired condition or a world as we want to have it, including all characteristics such as: rational, irrational, utopian, realistic, dreamy, childish, naive, funny, charismatic, beautiful, participatory, vulnerable, etc. The character and interpretation- dependency of these elements highlight the need to share a vision with others, engaging with their vision as well as societal consensus processes in general.
