Tending Tomorrow Podcast: Conversations on the future of living
Tending Tomorrow explores how we live, age, and find happiness in uncertain times. In each episode, we’ll explore aspects of the “good life,” well-being, ecology, the built environment, the commons, mutual care, community engagement, art and activism, applied compassion, well-being, and much more.
This podcast is a Tending Tomorrow project and made possible thanks to a Collaboratory grant from the Center for 21st Century Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.
