In this talk Dr. Antti Rajala discusses pedagogical approaches in formal education settings for responding to youth's anguish about climate change and for supporting the development of youth's active citizenship and activism for sustainable futures. In particular, he examines the pedagogical potential of the concept of concrete utopia to support diverse youth in envisioning alternative futures and enacting them in the present.
