Join the Webinar: Shifting Paradigms

This 90-minute webinar is part of a workshop that explores society’s potential to consider new paradigms in times of crisis. Successfully responding to complex problems such as climate change calls for transformations at an unprecedented rate and scale, and windows of opportunity are rapidly  closing.
