Systems Thinking in Climate Change Education

Abstract: Addressing climate change starts with deeper learning, understanding, and caring, and that true understanding and behavior change requires more than new information. That's where systems thinking comes in. During the presentation, we'll highlight the ThinkWater systems thinking framework and share key strategies and resources that could help build the movement of climate thinkers. Participants will gain new tools and resources to enhance their climate change education programs. Maybe the next big thing in climate change education, research, and outreach is thinking, systems thinking. For a brief introduction, see these short videos about ThinkWater and Systems Thinking.
