Description

Session Description: 

Extreme weather, rising sea levels, mass extinction, and ravishing disease! The current script on climate change is a dreary one—portraying these outcomes as all but unavoidable and casting humans as the leading villain. But, what if we could change the script to one that transforms our understanding of the problem as well as our role in the solution? Fortunately, a wealth of recent research could enable us to do just that.

At the talk, Dr. O’Brien shared highlights from research that is leading to new ideas about how individuals, organizations, and whole societies can make decisions and change habits that lead to a more sustainable, thrive-able future.
