Learning Goals

Learning goals for Building a better Future.

In this activity we take on the challenge of how to build better futures.

In the midst of the climate crisis with such uncertain futures ahead, we ask ourselves: How can we become better ancestors to coming generations?

After this activity you will:

  • Become aware of the long time spans that can separate causes and effects of our actions

  • Learn about how to discuss care between generations

  • Contribute to a toolkit of climate change solutions for the Anthropocene
