We are going through unprecedented challenges with climate change and technology changing the state of the world as we know it. Unfortunately, people still consider these challenges future problems instead of current concerns.
How do we shift the narrative and create a shared understanding of the situation's urgency? This is the question that Karine will attempt to answer through the system mapping experiment. Through this presentation, Karine will explain why it is essential for us to get a shared understanding of sustainability, and will introduce you to the world of system mapping.
