Date and Time
We will not solve today’s complex problems—such as climate change—using the same way of thinking that allowed them to develop. The global challenges we face require us to consider invisible interconnections and complicated relationships, and to understand how everything connects.
Fortunately, you’re part of the new generation who has grown up with the Internet. As an interactive information web, the Internet encourages us to explore the relationships between ideas and to actively engage in navigating those connections.
In this sample lecture, we’ll talk about how the Internet may help our society shift to an “ecosystems” way of thinking emphasizing relationships and interconnections—and how vital this approach is when it comes to addressing the problems the world faces today. We’ll also explore how Fine Arts courses will help you use this type of thinking to benefit yourself, your career and your communities!
