What is the 2050 Workout?
Every year, 100 highly capable student leaders from middle schools and high schools around the region meet for an intense 12-hour day to “forecast” a 100% sustainable community in the year 2050 and then "backcast" to establish practical, personal “action plans” for home, school and city to jump start the new school year. It is facilitated by student Sustainability Ambassadors with a strong emphasis on peer-to peer learning.
