Event Description

Teaching Systems Thinking to Fill the Climate Literacy Gap

What will it take to produce a workforce that understands the relationships between environmental, social, and business factors so we can better address the risks of climate change in the coming years? A number of interrelating systems comprise each factor so incorporating systems thinking into the public and private educational systems should result in graduates better prepared to understand the interrelationships and make or contribute to better climate decisions and policies.

In this 90 minute webinar join leaders from education, business and philanthropy as they discuss:

1. The validity of the climate literacy gap and its impact on the workforce
2. Existing and emerging ways to teach systems thinking about climate disruptions, mitigation, adaptation and risk
management
3. Concepts for developing the national/international capacity to support climate literacy
4. The role of philanthropy in accelerating deployment
5. How community colleges can be at the center of better preparing the workforce for climate risk decisions.
