Launching A Time Capsule for our Future Ancestors
Organizer: Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre *this session is part of the Development & Climate Days
|This session is part of the Development & Climate Days. How will the choices we make today affect the lives of future generations, the people who are yet to be born? What will the world look like in 2050 and how will our choices affect the decisions of the future? Over the course of several months we have brought together unusual pairs of individuals – philosophers and youth activists, writers and scientists – to discuss this very question. What makes a “good ancestor” and how can we collectively be better at thinking about the long-term? In this session we are inviting you to answer this question and submit your answers in a time capsule that will be sealed until the year 2050! A time capsule is a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a deliberate method of communication with future people. We are gathering insights from our pairs and people around the world on what they would like to communicate to future generations. Come join us and add your voice!
