Educating Youth for a Sustainable Future

When we think about sustainability, we often focus on the state of the environment or long-term economic viability. While both of these things are essential, the solid foundation of a sustainable future (imagine a three-legged stool) requires a social element as well. To achieve social equity, this generation’s youth will need to perceive of themselves as actors in the civic theatre, believe themselves empowered as empathic participants. What steps might we take to develop a new model of education that truly inspires our youth to lead?

Writing into the Future: Youth and Fiction

Young people are anxious to make sense of the world and to envision what their role might be in it. Fiction, the power of story, is an important tool for doing that. Teaching kids to write fiction is an essential investment in the health and livability of our communities and in the promise of the next generation.

The No Wave Performance Task Force collaborates with writer Kate Zambreno, the author of the provocative critical memoir Heroines.

HEROINES is a social structure and literary reading that explores fangirlism, female partnership, mutual respect, authorship, persona, female vision, forms of de-hierarchization, and feminist leadership. “Kate Zambreno” will read and each of the core members will perform a tribute to a Heroine.
