WHAT

 

Every summer, student leaders from all over convene for a series of sustainable systemsthought experiments.” 

 

We forecast what it would be like to achieve 100% sustainability in our communities by the year 2050. Then we backcast to identify actions we can take today. 

 

  1. What do we need to know?

  2. How fast can we generate the best solutions?

  3. What would it look like if we succeed? 

 

Student Ambassadors and our team of Sustainable Systems Coaches facilitate a different focus each week for six weeks. In exploring one system in depth, the intersectionality among systems is revealed. Overarching frameworks for all six systems include: 

 

  1. Ending systemic racism and building equitable outcomes

  2. Reducing the impacts of climate change
