What Do College Students Think Their Future Holds?

Frustrated collegian with text: What do college students think their future holds?OK, boomers, we blew it. Our best hope is that younger generations are aware and smart enough to save the planet. What do they know, and what are their planet-saving intentions? We went straight to the source, and sat down with a University of Denver Ecological Economics class to get their perspective.

This conversation explores awareness and solutions – for inequity, poverty, hunger, and overconsumption, but mainly for the climate crisis and overshoot.

Classroom full of college students and Dave Gardner smile to cameraA very big thanks to Professor Paul Sutton and the members of his Ecological Economics class:

Angie, Cody, Tim, Uma Baysal, Taynah Fernandes, Matt Gartland, Christian Giles, Katie Johnson, KJ Jumper, Melissa Kreppein, Juanlin Lin, Zein Massoud, Ava Moin, Katherine Sweeney, Gui Zeng

On the GrowthBusters podcast, we come to terms with the limits to growth, explore the joy of sustainable living, and provide a recovery program from our society’s growth addiction (economic/consumption and population). This podcast is part of the GrowthBusters project to raise awareness of overshoot and end our culture’s obsession with, and pursuit of, growth.

Dave Gardner directed the documentary GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, which Stanford Biologist Paul Ehrlich declared “could be the most important film ever made.” Co-host Stephanie Gardner has degrees in Environmental Studies and Environmental Law & Policy.
