Are you frustrated by the polarization in our culture and the constant either/or thinking that leads us to perpetually choose sides rather than work together to solve the problems we face? Learn how to be a solutionary who cultivates compassion; conducts careful research; hones critical, systems, strategic, and creative thinking; builds bridges that lead to collaboration; and solves problems in ways that do the most good and least harm to people, animals, and the environment. To illustrate the solutionary process, we’ll look at the issue of climate change, but come prepared to take this process to any and all problems you wish to solve.

This Ted Exford Climate Stewards lecture is supported by Dave & Loretta (Exford) Hoglund.
