WHAT: Every summer, student leaders from all over King County, 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 we backcast to identify actions we can take today.... 2040, 2030, 2020.
The 2050 Update: Covid Generation is the culmination and showcase of the best work our students produced through the six week series of 2050 Workouts.
