All Champions for a sustainable future
Every summer, student leaders convene for the 2050 WORKOUT, a series of sustainable systems “thought experiments.” We forecast what it would be like to achieve 100% sustainability in our own communities by the year 2050, then backcast actions we can take today... 2040, 2030, 2020.

Invest in hope so that 2050 might look something like this
Our Friendraising / Fundraising Goal | $10,000
500 registered participants
500 people inspired to take action with us
500 people invited to invest financially, at whatever level (like NPR!)
Here’s the simple math...
500 people give $20 each = $10,000
200 people give $50 each = $10,000
100 people give $100 each = $10,000
10 people give $1,000 each = $10,000
4 business sponsors give $2,500 each = $10,000
Wait… what if all of the above happened?
