Protecting the Well-Being of Future Generations & Putting Hope Into Action
August 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am EDTFree
John Rawls said “Do unto future generations what you would have had past generations do unto you.” Only one country in the world has put this idea into law: Wales, the smallest country in Great Britain. How can other countries, states, higher education policy-makers, local governances, and institutions put these principles into practice? And why is a clear vision and framework for change now more necessary than ever?
Join Jane Davidson, proposer of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act and author of “#futuregen: lessons from a small country,” as she discusses with Leith Sharp, Director and Lead Faculty, Executive Education for Sustainability Leadership at Harvard University, and Meghan Fay Zahniser, Executive Director at AASHE, why now is the time for others to also consider what actions should be taken today to protect our children tomorrow.
