About Change the Course

Change the Course: People-Powered Strategies for a Stable Climate aims to crowd-source a vision of a just and sustainable 2050.

Through in-person workshops and online at ChangetheCourse.org, we’ll create a picture of the future we need—and brainstorm the strategies that will get us there.
