III. Generation Waking Up
Generation Waking Up is a 3-hour multi-media, interactive, peer-led workshop that explores the ways in which we, as students, can confront our current social and environmental challenges.
Through live music, spoken word, media, interactive group exercises, and dialogue, the Wake Up takes participants through a transformative exploration of the critical questions facing students and society today:
1) Who Are We? Who are we as individuals and as a generation? What makes us unique and powerful?
2) Where Are We? What are the current issues threatening our modern world?
3) What Has to Change? What has to change in order to create a thriving, just, sustainable world?
4) What Do We Do Now? What projects and movements already exist? What is actually possible for the future? And what do we have to contribute to this Movement as individuals and as a generation?
