Fariba Karimi and Andrew Ringsmuth will both present a talk at the One Day Conference 2021, taking place online from March 5–6, 2021.
Their session is on Friday from 4 to 4:30 pm (CET).
Session topic & description:
“Why solutions to inequality and the climate crisis are linked”
All over the planet, people long for solutions that will stabilize Earth’s climate and eliminate social inequalities as quickly as possible. However, there simply are no instantaneous ‘magic bullet’ solutions to these complex problems. The problems are complex because there are interactions between the many parts of the system. It is impossible to change some parts without also affecting others, sometimes in unexpected ways.
It is essential to consider this when trying to steer the system towards the future we want. In this session, we will focus on interactions between two complex challenges that affect our everyday lives—inequality and sustainability—and consider what the science of complex systems tells us about how to deal with them, together.
