The Museum as a Fiduciary Space for Future Casting.
Our project seeks to address the challenge of creating new social spaces in which to hold new social conversations about taking action on climate inaction.
Our proposal reimagines the museum as a fiduciary space that is a safe place for individual contributions to local community engagement in globally curated conversations about climate action.
Our proposal imagines museums as host venues for bringing Art-Science Thinkers speaking on behalf of Nature, People Who Care self-selected from the general population, climate change activists, financing professionals, especially pension fiduciaries, business leaders, government officials, and others together to explore the social obstacles to social action on climate and develop innovative approaches around those obstacles.
One approach is to look back from future time - say the year 2100 - to see how humanity finally figured out the way to take action on climate.
The climate crisis and sustainability lack the imagination of an end game. How? When do we get to a place where we live in long-term harmony with our environment? What would the history record as the important milestones that got us there? Did COVID-19 jumpstart a systemic, substantive change toward Climate Hope. What else happened between 2020 and 2100 to address social justice, equity, economy and enterprise? Are we thriving, or just surviving?
