The next meeting of the Future Café will take place Thursday, February 1st, from 4:30-6:00 pm in Wilder House with the student-selected topic of long-term human responses to Climate Change. Participants are invited to check out the following optional media pieces that can be used to launch the discussion:
1) "Six Ways We Can Adapt to Climate Change"
2) Snowpiercer (Bong Joon-Ho, 2013)
All undergraduates are welcome to participate. Registration is highly encouraged as seating is limited. RSVP via Eventbrite or on Facebook.
What is a Future Café? It is an experiment. It is an open-ended conversation. It is a chance to brainstorm and share ideas without evaluation. It is a place to eat cake. Based loosely on both 3CT’s successful Book Salon series and the global Death Café movement, the objective of this new recurring event is to provide opportunity and space for undergraduates to collectively imagine utopian possibilities and long-term futures.
Under the auspices of the Materializing the Future research project, Professors Shannon Dawdy and Bill Brown facilitate the Future Café, a venue where students in the College can creatively and collaboratively imagine possibilities for the long term.
