Juliette Rooney Varga & Stephanie McCauley: Multisolving Climate Change, Public Health, and Wellbeing: A Framework for Bringing Win-Win Solutions Into Your Classroom

Abstract: In this webinar, we will introduce concept of multisolving, or systemic solutions that protect the climate while also improving health, equity, and wellbeing. We will also provide a framework and toolkit for applying multisolving to real-world decision-making and educational projects: FLOWER, or the Framework for Long-Term, Whole-System, Equity Based Reflection. Lastly, we will share examples of how multisolving and FLOWER are being used in educational settings from secondary to undergraduate levels and have an informal discussion about how webinar participants might adopt the tool in their own educational work.

Stephanie McCauley is a Project Coordinator and Operations Manager for Climate Interactive, where her current focus is on Multisolving, illuminating the health, jobs, and equity co-benefits that may be realized when enacting thoughtful climate policies. She lives in Greenville, SC and is currently serving on the city's Green Ribbon Advisory Committee, where she makes recommendations for the city's sustainability plan. Stephanie has a M.S. in health economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a B.S. degree in applied mathematics from the University of South Carolina Honors College.

Juliette Rooney-Varga is an expert on climate change and sustainability. She is the director of the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative and associate professor of Environmental Science. She has more than twenty years' experience as a scientist studying biogeochemistry and microbial ecology. Her current work focuses on developing and researching the learning impact of interactive simulations that enable people to explore, for themselves, the expected climate and energy impacts of decisions and policies. These simulations bring current climate change and energy science to students, citizens, and policymakers at all levels and have been shown to motivate science-informed action.
