SJC Monthly Meeting - Join Us! March "Societal Problem Solving Techniques"
For our March Monthly Meeting we are inviting everyone to the first session of SJC's Spring 2018 Certificate Program In Urban Sustainability. The venue for our meeting will NOT be at City Hall this month, instead it will be at Hudson County Community College, a short walk from the Jrnl Sq PATH. AND this meeting will start earlier and end later - starts 6:30 and ends at 9:30 ! Our Certificate Program is mult-dimensional and covers off on lots of topics, but we feel especially strong about providing folks with a framework about HOW TO THINK ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY, and our first session addresses the opportunity to solve societal problems more holistically, so we think it will help participants to shift the usual way they would contemplate solutions. The session will be led by Jaimie Cloud, Founder & President of The Cloud Institute in NYC. Read Jaimie's bio here Session Description - Taking a systems approach to sustainability—that is to say, looking at the world holistically, rather than in a siloed approach—generates significant synergies and has great benefits. We will learn to use tricks and techniques that allow us to view the world as an organic, complex system, even though we are limited, cognitively, to thinking of the world in simple terms. This segment of the Certificate Program will give you the tools, world views and concrete methods you need to better understand and communicate about the world holistically.
