Inter-Generational: A Dialogue On Fairness For The Future


Facing up to the causes and consequences of climate change often provokes conflict between older and younger generations, between those who are thought to be responsible for our situation and those who are – or will be – suffering from the damage done. And yet, solidarity and collaboration seem to be the only ways toward a common vision that will allow all of us to make a change and build another future. This workshop offers a safe and brave space to express what members of different generations expect, fear, and wish from each other, as well as the hopes we share, the energies we can set free, and the utopias we dream about for our own – and each other’s -futures. The workshop aims to provide a mixture of impulses and playful, interactive parts that involve devising and performing little impromptu moments of what “future fairness” might look like.
