“The future has been colonised” – Roman Krznaric, The Good Ancestor

A picture of BMC students

Be a good ancestor, invest in the protection of the living planet and the transformation of our current systems.

Black Mountains College is devoted to confronting climate breakdown and fostering regenerative mindsets and practices to ensure a habitable world. Help us build a thriving community to prepare people for uncertain futures and to create systems change.

We need the support of those who share our passion for addressing the impact of climate change and our belief that public education is the principle means to train current and future generations to adapt and thrive and to play a role in the huge changes needed to current systems to ensure a habitable planet.

If you share our passion and commitment, please support us and be a good ancestor

Your gift will not only be supporting students today but students for years to come. They will be the agents of change the planet so desperately needs. By reframing our perspective from short term to long term, we can ensure that we have a tangible impact on the world that current and future generations will inherit.
