Workshop with Dennis Meadows: Cognitive challenges of modeling long-term climate change dynamics
8:30 AM, Monday 24 May 2021 EDT (2 hours)
The phenomenon of climate change is still characterized by large uncertainty and ambiguous vocabulary. Thus rational discussion is difficult. In this workshop, Professor Meadows will discuss the theory and demonstrate the practice of using simple, manual games easily to convey important features of climate change.
