    Overview

    The Sustainable Futures: Sustaining Positivity in an Age of Climate Anxiety program provides students with opportunities to hear from and engage with a variety of people working toward environmentally just and sustainable futures—farmers, activists, artists and naturalists. Join like-minded individuals who believe in the possibility of positive change and want to come together to shape a different tomorrow.

    Curriculum

    Through a series of guest lectures and discussions with farmers, activists, educator and artists, as well as through our own discussions, reading and writings, we will consider “sustainability” beyond the sustainability of environmental and human systems to include the sustainability of our work, of our hope for the future, of our commitment to creating positive change.

    2-week residential and academic program at Smith College.
