Fridays for Future demonstrations have swept across the globe, demanding that politicians think not just of their short-term future, but of the long-term impact their choices have. Short-termism in politics is an issue for generations to come and affects not just the environment, but the economy, health care system, and the welfare system.

Join us at this event to learn more about the cognitive factors that motivate short-termism in politics, institutional reforms that can address individual sources of short-termism and the current political action in governments across the globe.
