By unpacking perspectives, learners deepen understanding, build sustainability habits of mind, and embrace complexity towards more impactful and sustainable solutions – and, most importantly, empower younger scientists/ youth leaders for a more just and sustainable world. Join Cindy Chen in this engaging session to explore the Sustainability Compass and the Systems Iceberg as a strategy for exploring and expanding understanding of sustainability in Science. Let’s build habits of mind and cognitive thinking skills with your students through these analytical and practical tools.
