NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Learning how to learn in an effective and impactful way can improve problem solving skills and help society combat global challenges such as the climate crisis.
In a new episode of the acclaimed Net Zero series, Professor Tina Grotzer, a Harvard cognitive scientist whose research identifies ways in which understandings about the nature of causality impact our ability to deal with complexity in our world, discusses with youth Climate Activist Michelle Whiting effective ways to make the transition to Net Zero more inclusive as well as shift mindsets from short-term to long-term thinking. “My students recognize the urgency of climate change and the power of innovation, says Grotzer. “We need to envision the possibilities and think differently about our world. Being an earthling first really puts at the center the quest in front of us all.”
