What will it take for humanity to face the climate crisis and related challenges of the coming decades? Some futurists and activists imagine near-term and long-range futures that center thriving queer lives, build our resilience for disruptive future forces, and radically transform broken systems to work for all. This program seeks to understand how the next few decades could disproportionately shape LGBTQ+ lives, and how queer people and our movement can have an outsized impact on the future.
