Who is set to inherit Hanford? Here’s a clue. Cleaning up Hanford’s legacy of toxic and radioactive waste is going to take 40-100 more years to complete, with some sections of the massive 486 square mile site requiring monitoring in perpetuity. How do we prepare the next generation to inherit this complex mess? We provide opportunities for learning and keep it fun. We build community and connect young folks with Hanford experts. We use mentorship to share knowledge and experience. We eat meals together. We play games and get to know each other. We provide tools to learn how to effectively weigh in on cleanup decisions. We listen. We collaborate. We collectively shape the future.
Inheriting Hanford has launched. Watch out world.
