  1. Somehow, it seldom comes up that the effort (at least the legalistic effort) to protect the rights of future generations began with Jacques Cousteau, in 1979 I think, when he published his essay on the topic. This resulted in a movement to pass a resolution through the UN that I understand continues to this day.

It opened my eyes to the role museums can play in breaking the temporal colonialism that Roman Krznaric describes. Truly, if museums become spaces that ignite generational empathy and forward-thinking action, we’re taking a big step in the right direction for a sustainable future.
