WOT Does 2050 Look Like? | Wed 16 Mar @ 6pm

WOT Collective invites you to practice interdisciplinary teamwork to envision a positive future for the year 2050. In this session we will work in teams to come up with a vision for how we live work and play in the year 2050. In this workshop we will incorporate futures and systems thinking to identify potential solutions to environmental and consumption challenges.
It's time to re-imagine what ‘sustainable futures’ means to young people.
