About the Event

You can register for one or all six unique sustainable systems workouts. Over 3 days, we forecast what it would be like to achieve full sustainability in our community by 2050, then we backcast to identify actions we can take today… 2040, 2030, 2020. Will it be possible to completely retool for…

100% sustainability? We are living in a time of great crisis and great opportunity. The Covid Crisis is altering all systems of modern human activity. The Climate Crisis is happening simultaneously. The Black Lives Matter Movement demands big structural changes.

Collectively, we must rapidly advance a sustainable future. What do we need to know? How are these systems intersectional? How fast can we generate the best solutions? What would it look like if we succeed?
